My 17 year old son has been on lexapro for about 9 months, for severe anxiety. In that time he has made several suicide attempts and has now started seeing monsters in the dark (hallucinations). I know that teenage suicide can be linked to SSRIs and that hallucinations have been mentioned as a possible side effect. I'm seriously thinking about taking him off the Lexapro to see if these symptoms disappear. He is seeing a psychologist, maybe the talking therapy would be enough? Does anyone else have experience of Lexapro and teenagers or these kind of side effects?
