So I’ve been tapering off my lexapro for 2 1/2 weeks now… So I figured I’d better give an update on how it’s all going!

I have had all the withdrawal symptoms of aching muscles, nausea and mood swings. It has been tough, but worth it ride! I haven’t felt any depression or anxiety creeping in which is great! So I’m hoping that even once I’ve tapered off fully it won’t return; but the only person I know I can genuinely lean on is God!

I’ve been diffusing Peace & Calming II religiously in my house and applying Stress Away to my wrists, temples and neck. This has been helping tremendously with my mood swings, especially when I feel myself getting frustrated with the kiddies!

My next update I will post will be once I’ve fully tapered off the medication, so please keep me in your prayers that I can successfully do it!

God Bless you all!

    I have been tapering off Lexapro as well replacing it with lavender, peace & calming, valor, lavender. Also frankincense helps boost mood!

    Hope your journey goes well! I made a rub combining them all to use in place of stress away because I’m almost out and need to reorder.
