Struggling with Lexapro Withdrawal: Need Advice

After several years of Lexapro, I felt it wasn't helping me. At the end of last year I decided to start weaning down from 20mg to now 5mg, with the guidance of my doctor (although I use Hers so). I've been on 5mg for a month or two now and yesterday was the first day I've forgotten to take my meds in years. I'm taking it as a sign to quit completely. Any advice for withdrawals? I'm zappy, tired 24/7, and zoned out. I've been out of it ever since going down from 15 to 10mgs and haven't recovered since.
