I've been taking lexapro for depression and anxiety for over 10 years now, I have recently stopped using it, just to try to see what my life is like without it. ( please spare me the don't change medications without doctors permission, complications, etc.) it has only been a month but I feel like I'm actually having emotions again. They aren't all good, but I like feeling things... It's scary and I feel more vulnerable than ever... I am just looking for positive reinforcement... That I can get through this, and cope with real un muted feelings... Am I completely off base here?
