    Hi R,
    I'm responding to your letter in eHealthMe. I was taking Escitalopram - the generic name for Lexapro for about 3 months. In Sept. I slowly took myself off this med. In Dec. 2013 I was admitted to the hospital because of chest pain. A ct scan showed I had developed a Pulmonary Embolism. I was shocked because I was always so healthy. The Hematologist put me on Warfarin since he does not know where the PE came from. The last blood work showed the PE is gone. The Ultra Sound of my legs was negative. I know where the PE came from-taking the generic for Lexapro. I still have to be on Warfarin indefinitely. Thanks for hearing me out. I hope this helps.

    Hi Gary,
    Just read your letter in eHealthMe. Sounds like me. I was taking Escitalopram-the generic for Lexapro for about three months. I didn't like the way it made me feel. So in Sept. or Oct I slowly took myself off this med. On Dec 23, 2013 I was admitted to the hospital because of chest pain. a ct scan showed I developed a Pulmonary Embolism. An Ultra Sound of my legs came back negative. I am on Warfarin for the PE. My last blood work showed the PE is gone. Since the hematologist does not know where the PE came from I have to be on Warfarin indefinitely. I know where it came from, the drug Lexapro. Thanks for hearing me out. I hope this helps.


    Gary Crockett on Nov, 3, 2011:

    I slowly took myself off Lexapro 10mg over 2 months after 2 months of being off it I have had a pulmonary embolism. I went back to the page of side effects for Lexapro and found pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis listed as a side effect of Lexapro. I am now looking for any others who have had this experience. So far I have survived the embolism but am still in severe pain and looking for answers. I am in Australia.


    R on Sep, 2, 2012:

    I have been taking Lexapro for a little over a year. I was/am anemic but otherwise healthy. June of this year, I started blacking out and found out I had to small blood clots in my lung. My hormones are not right, and have to be on Coumadin. No Doctor mentioned it being a possible side effect of the drug. They still do not have an answer as to what caused it.


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Was given this drug to aid in passing kidney stones following a lithotripsy procedure. Everything was fine until the urine cleared and no stones or particles were present in the urine strainer. I haven't been able to leave the bathroom for about four hours because I can't stop peeing. Sometimes it is just a dribble but it has also flowed normal. Hopefully this wears off soon since it is keeping me from getting any rest.


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Had IV morphine twice within 5 days for kidney stone pain and have had burning in stomach ever since. It has been nearly two months.
