From this study (2 years ago):
Began taking Lexapro and after 4 days of taking it began to develop hives. Not sure what was causing these hives, I continued taking the Lexapro 10mgs for a total of 3 weeks. After ruling out other possibilities of what the cause was, I determined it was the Lexapro... The Hives spread over many parts of my body, starting on my hands and under arms, moving to all other areas. The rash would appear most at night and would lessen by morning. The hives on my lower extremities disappeared only to be replaced with dark and painful bruises. It has now been over a week and the symptoms are not lessening in anyway...
