I feel ashamed

Hi All. I have been on cipralex/lexepro since 2004. My doctor and I decided to go off it because I felt like it was not working and making me dizzy. So two months ago, I started at my normal dose of 15 mgs and dropped to 10 mgs.. Everything was going fine, then the next month dropped to 5 mgs..

Well all hell broke loose. My anxiety came back two fold and I had terrible withdrawal side effects. Yesterday my doctor told me to go back up to 10 mgs. I am now on day 2 back on 10 mgs but feel defeated and guilty and ashamed that I could not do it.

Can they changed my medication from one to another while I am on 10 mgs or do I have to totally wean myself off like I was trying?

Thanks
