Lexapro: A GoGo

About a year ago, I started the process of trying to remove Lexapro from my regimen. I’m sure there are many who can relate to the pill regimen and the Goldilocks-esque process of finding the right combination. Because of that process, I did not make this decision lightly.

Lexapro: A GoGo (sprint version)

It frames itself […]
