I have been on Lexapro for around 4 years and with the consent of my doctor I have been tapering off Lexapro for the past 3 months.I was taking 10 mg and under her care am almost down to zero in the coming weeks.
Problem..I am assuming it is a withdrawal symptom because I am waking up in the wee hours of the morning without going back to sleep.This is tough for me because I work retail and this is a very busy time.I`ve attempted to reach my doctor for help but she has not called me back of yet.
What can I do for this lack of sleep?

Re: Lexapro Withdrawal
I would adjust my sleep cycle during this busy time or try and get my work schedule adjusted so I was working late. I would keep trying to contact my pdoc too, to see what/if OTC sleep aids might help.
