Loss of appetite is a common side effect of lexapro, plus a healthy diet and exercise, I do not think it should be a problem.-
List of possible side effects:
I think you will find that some people gain weight while others do not. That being said, since you are a healthy eater and you exercise, you should not have to worry about gaining weight. It really is quite simply a matter of calories. If you eat more calories than you burn, then you gain weight.
Good luck on the new med,
I see alot of people worried about this. I am also 35 and have been on Lexapro for almost 2 years and have never had any weight issues with it, and I have a fractured hip so I do not exercise that much, but I guess everyone is different, and oh my sister takes it too and has no weight issues.
