I'm weaning off the Lexapro again. Since listening to the show a couple of weeks ago when they were talking about all the fucked up things these medications do to a person, I've determined that I can't continue putting this evil shit into my body.

I'm a week down now, having cut my dosage from 20mg to 10mg daily and it's been a fucking nightmare. The headaches have been crippling, the panic attacks have been frequently debilitating and, quite frankly, I've been a cunt to be around.

I'm praying the symptoms will settle down enough that my body will eventually come to get used to the reduced dosage. Then I will further cut the dosage by half.

I hate this, but I despise the medication more.

I want it gone.
