I was on lexipro. About 4 days after being on it, I felt terriffic. A couple months later, I felt AMAZING! I descided I wanted to try to go without it. I dont know if you said you got off it immediatally or gradually, but I stopped immediatally. I felt like hell. I started getting body "shocks" like someone was giving me electric shocks in my head. They hurt. I was scared. I went back on and got better. What I experianced was withdrawl. It sucks. A couple months later, I got off of it gradually. I never did get as happy as I was on the drug, but I was able to function without it. When I first went on it, I was real bad. I think, if you want to stay on it, you should continue. If you want off, do it gradually, with the assistance of your doctor. Good luck!!
