Hi Everyone.

I have been slowly reducing my Lexapro and have come off completely.....It has been 1 week now with no meds....I have been feeling a little funny, kind of hung over.....How long does it remain in your system?? It's hard to judge if what I'm feeling is a side effect as I'm coming off meds or the fact that I still need meds?????

Thanks.....

As I understand it - I'm not a doctor - on average it's 6 - 10 days. You can check its half life in the info sheet that comes with a prescription.

I went off Lexapro and the withdrawal lasted weeks and weeks even though I tappered very slowly. Mostly it was the brain zaps. They were annoying. If you don't know what I'm talking about then consider yourself lucky.
