Lexapro Side Effects
There are other possible problems that can occur in people taking Lexapro. These rare side effects occur in less than 1 percent of people. It is difficult to tell whether these side effects are because of the medication or something else.
These rare Lexapro side effects include but are not limited to:
- Nose bleed
- Weight loss (see Lexapro and Weight Loss)
- Muscle pain or bone pain
- Liver problems
- Mania or hypomania
- Decreases in blood sodium levels (hyponatremia)
High blood sugar (hyperglycemia)
Hair loss (see Lexapro and Hair Loss).
It is possible that you may experience some or none of the Lexapro side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand whether you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Lexapro. Also let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Lexapro, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
