Starting October 14th I weaned off of 40mg lexapro that I had been on for 13 years. Following my doctors orders I was completely off lexapro and on 60mgs of Prozac on November 5th. A week after that I came down to 40mgs prozac and got knocked over by flu like symptoms and nausea. I'm talking completely stuck in bed, chills, diarrhea, anxiety, body aches, hot flashes, weakness. My doctor says it could be serotonin toxicity but since I'm not having the motor agitation she thinks it's probably lexapro discontinuation symptoms. She does not think these are prozac side effects. Does anyone have experiences of withdrawal symptoms? I'm starting to believe this is going to go on forever.
