      Sometimes I forget to take my Lexapro and I get sooo dizzy. Anytime I move my head I get a dizzy spell.

      oof unfortunately I don't have any advice, but I empathize a lot. I had about 4 days recently where I didn't have my Lexapro and I felt so shaky and unsteady. I took lots of naps and just lived on autopilot honestly.

      What were you prescribed Lexapro for?

      the withdrawals are INSANELY miserable with lexapro. i hope you haven't cold turkeyed it. it is definitely a medication to be weaned off of. if you have, i'd take an antiemetic which keeps dizziness from spilling into nauseous territory.
