I am taking Lexapro 10 mg daily (x 5 months) for anxiety. I began noticing hair loss within a month, whhch continues daily. I have also recently noticed fine tremors in my fingers and chattering of my teeth.
Hello marshaloges. I suggest, recommend you notify your doctor. I believe that you're having a late reaction to the lexapro. Certainly the tremors is not normal, its considered to be a adverse, serious side effect. As well as the teeth chattering, thats not normal. Hair loss, thinning does occur, although its not considered a common, side effect. I was on lexapro and I stopped taking it for the reason of being constantly tired. Take care of yourself please and best of wishes,pledge
i took lexapro and started noticing hairloss, and my hair was already fine and more prone to shedding but after taking this medicine my hairlosss gott sooo bad. but when after two months i stopped taking lexapro. MY HAIR STOPPED FALLING OUT after like 1 or 2 weeks since i stopped taking it. the only reason im writting this is if anyone else is loosing hair after lexapro and its driving you crazy... it actually maybe the medicine. but i do know that everyone is different sO IF YOU ARE LOOSING HAIR AFTER LEXAPRO AND THAT ITSELF IS WORRYING YOU MORE THAN THE LEXAPRO IS HELPING. ITS WORTH IT TO STOP TAKING IT FOR A LIL WHILE AND SEE IF THATS THE CASE WITH YOU OR NOT. after consulting with ur doc :)
My 19 year daughter has been on Lexapro for a year. Her hair started falling out within months but she didn't realize how badly until recently. She has lost half her hair. I am getting a full blood panel on her to make sure this is the culprit but I feel so horribly for her. It is noticeable. No one told us this could be a side effect to look for. If you already are struggling with anxiety and depression, would this not be something good to know? I am praying this is the problem and that it will stop falling out soon and will begin to grow back.
