Hey there Celery, and welcome to healingwell.
I took Lexapro for about
3 months or so. I was on 20 mg...and am actually shocked to hear you are on 30 mg, because I thought 20 mg was the highest dosage.
Anyway, in the 3 months I was on the Lexapro, I too gained weight, about
15 pounds. I do blame the Lexapro, because now I am on Effexor XR, and I am starting to lose the weight I had put on.
Everyone does react differently to each medication, but yes, your weight gain could be due to the Lexapro...it is a possibility for sure!
Wishing you the best.
