hey! I really don't think you need to worry about withdrawal symptoms from such a low dose...but, as always "your mileage may vary." Most people who have problems with benzo withdrawal either a)discontinue it abruptly without a proper taper (bad, bad idea) or b)do a taper, but have been on it for an extended period of time (long-term use may result in changes in one's brain, so it makes sense that the brain would have to re-adapt to being without benzos). I took Klonopin for 2 years, starting when I was 18 and stopping when I was 20. (I mention my age because young people usually have more "issues" with psychotropics, benzos included). Anyway, my dose went from 1mg to 4mgs and I did a month taper from 4mgs to nothing. I had a few headaches, occasional trouble sleeping after I was down to no Klonopin, but no serious, hardcore issues. So, just based on my own experience, I really don't see how or why you should have any problems. By the way--good luck with the lexapro...I hope it works well for you.
