Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Usually lexapro should not cause any significant withdrawal symptoms.

And you tapered off eftil so should not be a problem.

You should go back to your original self within 3 months.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
