Hi, Surruhh! Hair loss (alopecia, pattern baldness) is not listed as a side effect of Lexapro although 1 suspicious case was studied.in 2011. It may be that pre- and post- market studies were not of sufficient duration to document this effect.
For more information go to MentalHealthDaily and search Lexapro hair loss. There's a lot of possibilities there.
But to answer your question, in my years of Lexapro use I had no hair loss at all ~ thank goodness!
Best wishes, Wildcat
