Maria (2 years ago):
I have been battling depression and anxiety on and off for about 7 or more years now. I have taken Lexapro 20 mg 1x a day, for about 3 years ago, had no real serious side effects from it, and it was helping my depression a lot. I was off the medicine for some time now, due to pregnancy. My OB just put me back on it the past month or so, for help with depression again. This past month I have eveloped a severe rash all over my upper body, arms and face. Skin is bright red and itching and sores. Does anyone know if this could be related to a side effect from the Lexapro in being pregnant as well? I am considering to stop taking it again... I need some help with this...
