Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I am not sure what the question is? Clearly Lexapro has had a negative effect on you. The tapering process should be under the care of a physician familiar with SSRI's So to repeat, could you please restate your question so I may give you the best answer possible.
I am not a physician but am quite familiar with psychotropic medications. There are several other SSRI antidepressants that may be less distressing with respect to side effects. I cannot tell what your body is doing, but the side effects you describe are certainly consistent with seratonin withdrawal. I believe that the drug you are referring to is Zyprexa which is an anti psychotic medication which in low doses is sometimes used for anxiety. You should share your dissatisfaction with your doctor and if you cannot work it out you have every right to ask for a referral to another doctor or seek one on your own. I would like to add that you should not discontinue medication unless you are under a doctor's supervision as there are serious consequences to stopping medications abruptly. Best wishes and good luck.
