Hello, I am new to Healing Well. I have had a medically uneventful life up until this my 59th year. All in one hit I have commenced anxiety attacks, carpel tunnel syndrome and Ankylosing Stenosis in my Cervical spine. Also dealing with what I understand is a pre-diabetic condition, ie, I am overweight and eat too much. I have noticed a more rapid increase in weight gain since commencing the Lexapro for the anxiety. Has anyone any advice as to whether weight gain is a recognized side effect of this medication please. Thanking you.
