  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I started taking Lexapro in December 2012. I also started Trilipix again. I took it a couple of years ago with no adverse side effects. The rash started within a week of beginning the medications. I stopped taking the Lexapro about a month ago, thinking that was what caused the rash, but it is not getting any better. It is extremely itchy.


  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • The rash is very red and scaly. It started on my ankles and has spread to my arms and lower back. I stopped the lexapro about a month ago but the rash has not gone away.


  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • I have muscle pain and no strenght in my hands and sometimes get a tingling feeling in fingers, hands and arms. I also get tingling feeling sometimes in feet and legs
