In the past months though my homelife has become a utter wreck. I changed jobs from Daycare worker to Medical Receptionist in a high volume medical clinic. Upon starting the new job I had my current depression medication upped to a higher dose.
After almost 2 months of being in the higher dose, things have gotten much worse at home. I have been tagged as a narcissistic passive aggressive bitch. After intervening from friends I have seen my problem. My husband has brought to mind that the medicine I am on is the main cause of the attitude I have.
So, I have spoken to our friends, who we call brother and sister and we have all come to am agreement. I have decided to taper off of and stop the medication. After which I will swear off SSRI'S completely.
My name is Raven and I am addicted to Lexapro.

Great to hear from you again Raven and I am sorry to hear that you have identified difficulty with Lexapro. More than twice the half life of Cymbalta so is an easier withdrawal, but must still be treated with respect! It is still a potent little number and almost everyone complains about the length of time the zaps last, but they will always go...
As Hat said, let us know if we can do anything...

Well i did a quick review of member complaints of acne during withdrawal. I found 11 members have experienced this occurance and these events were usually associated with itchy skin. One interesting thing I noted was that nearly all of these complaints were in the first few years of this website starting up. Not sure what that means. Most had the acne resolve shortly after the last Cymbalta dose but one person did mention it took 4 months to clear.

Sorry to hear of the issues Raven, but yes, the itching will obviously open skin to potential foreign bodies which can easily manifest as acne as it is what is trying to be removed from your system. I would say the two are part of the same issue, and thus will remove themselves at the same time.
Until then, it is unfortunately a game of waiting which is never easy, and for that you have my sympathy.
p.s. Hat that statement above is truly inspirational. You really come out with some wonderful one-liners.
