The one time I ran into this, I informed the company from an anonymous email account. I claimed that I'd accidentally typed a number into the URL bar and someone else's complete order information came up. I stated that I had not shared the information with anyone and did not plan to (to cover my ass and make it clear I was not threatening them). I was still worried that they'd send the FBI after me, but I also felt that I had a moral obligation to inform them of the issue before someone else discovered it and stole a bunch of customer information.

This is true of all SSRIs. There are withdrawal symptoms and you're supposed to taper off to minimize them. Her doctor should have explained this to her, the pharmacist should have explained this to her, the prescription most likely came with literature explaining this, and there should have been a sticker on the bottle warning to her consult her doctor before stopping it. I had the same issues with Celexa, but tolerate Lexapro without issue. The side effects SSRIs are far better than the older tri-cyclic anti-depressants, but it not all of them work well for all people.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
