I took lexapro one time, one pill and I woke up with my body burn and a blind spot pretty close to my center vision. It's been 5 months and the blind spot is still there. Which is just making me mom depressed. And I have yet to find anyone that can relate to my problem. Nor have any doctors been able to explain it to me.
