Did anyone feel worse while tapering off their meds? I don’t feel extremely worse but still off. Any tips on what helped while you tapered off?

I started tapering off 20 mg Lexapro on Monday. I felt a bit of muscle weakness and nausea the first 3 days, but I’m feeling fine now. Exercise is the best thing to alleviate withdrawal symptoms in my opinion.

Is this cycle familiar? Feel bad; take meds. Feel better; decide meds are unnecessary. Taper off meds. Feel bad; repeat.

yep . it is like that for me too

but I stopped the meds too abruptly . take your time when you are tapering off . if there is no reason for stopping them in a short period of time then I would suggest to go 1 dose down every 3 months or so

I've tried some meds and none of em ever made me feel better, more side effects than dp symptoms. What's made more of a difference than any med I've ever tried are natural supplements like magnesium, l theanine cbd oil and b complex, which is why I'm completely staying away from meds. The one I was on was for sleeping/anxiety and I was on it for 3 months.. Made my anxiety 10x worse than what it was, like I was on edge or something and my body needed it for sleep. I'm young, I shouldnt train myself to depend on sleeping pills..
