I just started Lexapro today and took my first dose at 9am (EST). I only took 1/2 of a 10 mg to start. Aside from some stomach issues during the day things seemed to go half way decent. A little while ago I started getting these weird hot flashes and I'm a MALE. Hot almost burning feeling at the back of my neck, chest, and arms. I do not see any rash or hives present, so I am a little concerned. Now anxiety is kicking up a little since then, but had ZERO anxiety throughout the day. Has anyone had this side effect from taking Lexapro, as I am very new to this whole thing.
