I am 62 years old and started taking lexapro about a month ago. Yesterday I noticed when I got up that my lower left lip was swollen then later in the day it had moved to my lower right lip. This morning I get up and now my lower right lip is swollen and upper left lip is swollen as well. Has this happened to anyone else. It doesn't really hurt but looks weird. Any help for the swelling? Thank you
