Brenda (2 years ago):

I just had open heart surgery, mitral valve repair and maze procedure. Same time going through stressful divorce of 28 years. Five months out of surgery started to take lexipro. One month later I have chest pain as if I never had the surgery. Can lexipro interfere with my Heart healing? Can it cause internal bleeding?

  • I've been taking Lexapro for 5 years. I first started noticing hair falling more than normal 6-9 months after taking Lexapro.
    On the other hand I have been recently diagnosed hypothyrod and I am taking Eutirox 25 mg. My iron is also low. I started taking iron and eutirox in february. Hair loss was a lot better a month an a half after starting the treatment. However in the last month is has gotten bad again
