Depression may or may not cause hair loss but the treatments for depression are even more of a question. Some antidepressants can cause hair loss. Lexapro is an antidepressant. In several clinic trials it was shown to be effective in fighting depression and well tolerated. Side effects do happen with Lexapro but hair loss was not noted.
The lack of correlation between Lexapro and hair loss may simply mean it has not yet been determined. At this time no direct correlation has yet been proven or disputed. Since some antidepressants cause hair loss, perhaps Lexapro does too.
As you are off the Lexapro, I would continue on and not be overly concerned.
I am so happy your in remission and I wish you all the best in concieving that baby. I am sure you will make a wonderful Mother. :)
