Bloating from Lexapro
| Suzy
I have been on Lexapro for six months. , during that time I increased weight from 53k to 58k I was not unhappy about the weight gain as I think that because of my depression I lost weigh. A bloated stomach came little by little not good and very uncomfortable . I have Lexapro to thank for my return to good mental and have now gone off the medication Fingers crossed!

I have been in Lexapro for almost 2 yrs and I have gained almost 30 lbs. I feel bloated and lost my sharpness in my mind. Dry mouth & electrical shocks are some of the other side effects.
