Guess I jinxed it with my post a few days back. Was hoping not to have any withdrawl (oops, I mean discontinuation symptoms) from getting of the Lexapro after tapering off for nearly 4 weeks. Guess I was wrong.
It’s somewhat hard to describe how it feels like. It is somewhat of a combination of diziness and what i call “brain zaps” (almost a feeling of a small electric shock in my head). This is the type of symptom that is hard to describe unless you’ve been through it.
On the bright side, it does only come in waves and is mostly motion triggered. So doesn’t affect me much when i’m sitting. And overall shouldn’t last more than a week or so. It really sucks, but it is one of the drawbacks of SSRI anti-depressants..
