... changes in their appearance?
No!!! If anything, untreated depression, pain, anxiety will cause you to look older. I don't take SSRI's because my body reacts to them, but I know so many people that do and I've never ever noticed that. However, as a clinician (not MD), I've seen people with untreated depression and pain who look at least ten years older than they should. Don't worry about that. And lexapro, personal opinion, is so much better than some of the other SSRI's out there as far as side effects go. Hope that helps! Eating healthy, s staying active, taking multivitamins and anti-oxidants (or rather eating a diet rich in whole grains, fruits and veggies),are age defying. I'm a dietitian, so this I know for sure :-)
I agree 100%. I was on 20mg of lexapro for 2 years. I figured it was just natural even though I just turnt 28 that my face just dropped, and my throat. I tried tons of products including retin-a, it was all only temporary. I just quit taking lexapro a month ago because my stomach was just swollen and hard like maybe 3 month pregnant but not. I could not poop or pee for anything anymore! So I quit, and now just after a month and only using aloe and soap my face looks like it used to again. I am even genuinely happy again. I thought I was on the lexapro, but coming off of it after the withdraws now, I feel alive again, I can't think straight again, I can remember what I did yesterday again, my tummy is nice and soft and where it's supposed to be and most important to this post my face looks not like a 50 year old woman again.
