From this study (4 years 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.
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.
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
