... stomach and on my thighs. It came and went, and now it's almost always there. It itches if I'm hot and gets worse after I exercise. I've never had a rash and the only thing I have changed in my life is lexapro. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what can I do? Do I need to change medications? The rash is actually making my anxiety worse because it makes me feel hideous
I was on Lexapro a long time ago never got a rash though . I would take it up with my Dr. and if that doesn't work I would ask to be referred to a Dermatologist. 2nd opinions never hurt even if it is with a specialist. Let me know what happens. Thanks ! I hope you feel better soon.
So sorry you are feeling bad about Yourself..I have never had a rash in my 13 years of taking antidepresents ... but these meds effect everyone differently. . I have had onging acne that I never had before so I wouldnt be surprised if your rash is a side effect but could be a coincidence too.hang in there ..please know you are not alone in your struggle to cope with side effects .
