I've never heard of this before... LExapro has a half life of like 27 hours so I can't see how it owuld do that, then again I have no idea, may work for you... perhaps try something like Trazodone or a benzo as needed for insomnia.

> I just weaned myself off Lexapro over three months after taking it for close to two years at various doses up to 20 mg. Lately, I've been having some insomnia. If I take 5 mg of the Lex I sleep like a baby. Any negatives to using it in this manner? Say no more than twice a week? I've noticed if I do this with 10 mg, or two nights in a row, I feel that zombie fatigue that made me want to stop Lex in the first place.
> Be well.
