I've been on Effexor for 5 weeks (1 week 37mg than 75mg) due to persistent Insomnia, my doc is switching me to Lexapro in the hope this will be sorted. She read from a medical guideline journal to me that I just need to take the first Lexapro (5mg for first week then up to 10 after) on the day following my last Effexor. I'm a bit sceptical that it will go smoothly even tho I've been on it a relatively short time. The first two weeks of Effexor were rough and not looking forward to a repear but maybe as I'm already on one it might go smoothly. Anyone done similar ?
