    No Lexapro for a couple weeks now.

    Cold Turkey - I stopped. Bing. Nadda. F it. I suffered some for a few days but all better.
    Ya'll let me know if I get a little weird or something. I can go back on them if so.

    You are depending on Foo to tell you if you are acting weird? Not the best barometer. Just saying.

    Don't I know. This is where crazy people go to find normalcy.
    Actually my wife is keeping me in close check.

    he's fine....he just needs to send all the extra pills to me, that way they will go to good use.
    Umm...how many lexapro do you take at a time and how much liquor is required to wash it down?

    It's six pills and 4 beers. OR was it 4 pills and six beers. Either way, I was a zombie.

    Any combo of ten would probably work.

    I was on Lexapro for a week and broke out into a full body rash... I decided I was better without it.

    A friend mentioned to me it sounded more like a really nice car than a medication anyway.

    you sure that's the best way to go? I hope you have a safe back up plan and friends you aren't afraid to call. My own personal experience with this kind of thing is that it seems like a good thing at the time, and there are valid reasons for stopping but, it's not always the best option. Have you talked to your Doc about it? Finding the right medication tends to be a royal PITA, but can be well worth it in the end.

    Thanks for your concern. It's been a while and I haven't had any problems except a little coming off of it at first. Waking up with vertigo and a nasty headache. All normal this morning.

    Also, I'm not really freaking out or anything. I don't feel like hanging myself or jumping off a building - like I had in the past. My wonderful wife has been keeping me in check when I lose my cool. She'll let me know when I'm bugging out. And it's been helpful.

    Having people around that you care enough about to share your feelings with and who care enough about you to tell you when you're acting up is a blessing.

    Yes it is. I was blessed with a wonderful and beautiful and funny and sexy woman. And a heck of a good cook. She keeps me grounded.

    Sounds like a memory card, to me.



    In fact, I'd never heard of it, so I had to look up what it is. With this newfound knowledge, I have to offer my congratulations and wishes of good luck, substructure.
