I would like to go off lexamil 10mg. How can I do it ? Can I leave it at once ? ## How long have you been taking it and what has your doctor advised?

In most cases, it is best to taper these types of medications, as slowly as possible. ## I've been using it for 9 months now. Should I first reduse it. I'm gaining wait and think it is the Lexamil. ## Yes, you should definitely speak to your doctor about a tapering plan to get off of it and avoid most of the withdrawal and rebound effects.

Lexamil results and side effects
I have am also taking lexamil 10mg a day. In the first few weeks i suffered from awful headaches and my neck became incredibly stiff and leg muscle spasms, also a big increase in my appetite. I continued through that my appetite is ok now and the headaches are gone, just some days i still get a terribly stiff neck like a type of pressure up my spine, very uncomfortable. I am def. more emotionally balanced, cry less etc. However, I dont think any pill will take all your stress away, that is something one needs to work on yourself with the support of the medication. NEVER JUST STOP YOUR MEDS, you need to be weaned off of them. It has taken a few months to get to a better place while using the medication it does not happen over a few days as it needs to build up in your system and reach a ... ...

lexamil 10mg disorientation
My husband takes Lexamil 10 mg for depression for 7days now. He just sits and stares and do not react to anything. Is there a natural or herbal replacement for this medicine. Its as if he has stopped living. Thanks ## Hello, Kotie! How is your husband doing? Is this the only medication that he's taking?

But it could be that this just isn't the right antidepressant for him and he may need to try a different one. Is this the first medication in this class that he's tried? Are you sure he's only taking 10mgs? ...
