  • My elderly mother (85) was put on 5 mg of Lexapro by her family doctor (a gastroenterologist) 8 years ago. The dose was raised and for the last 6+ years is 30 mg a day. Over the last 6 years my mother has had some odd symptoms of dementia. She is able to read, comprehend and discuss novels. She remembers everything she has done recently ie. - outings, meals, gifts and conversations. Her only symptom that would infer dementia is she is always anxious, fatigued, and is confused upon waking. She moves slowly and has little desire to do much of anything except sleep. I believe it is the lexapro causing her confusion. Is it possible?
