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? Lexamil contains the active ingredient Escitalopram, which is an SSRI antidepressant and, if you've been taking it for a long period of time, then a sudden cessation may cause withdrawal and rebound effects, which may be worse than the condition you started taking it to treat. 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.

At the moment I'm living in Mali where there are no doctors available that who are specialised how to treat this situation. Any suggestions?

Hi, I am on Lexamil 10mg now for almost 5 months and it is really helping my anxiety attacks I have had.

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.

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? Such side effects should wear off in a few weeks, once his body gets used to the medication. 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? ...

Hello. Please can you give me your advice: Valdoxane versus Lexamil. ## Hello, Geen! How are you? Valdoxan is reported to cause fewer side effects, according to FDA reports.

Lexamil, however, can cause those types of side effects, along with dizziness, dry mouth and weight gain. What condition is being treated? ...

I'm on lexamil 10mg for 5 days now and I'm feeling terrible! I've got 24/7 nausea. The one day I had diarrhea and the next day everything was blurry the whole day and I was so dizzy, I hallucinated.

My 15year old daughter is on 10mg lexamil for burn out depression. She really would like to stop the treatment.

Has she been experiencing side effects? ...
