Yep. Been taking Lexapro for three years and I have bulked up somewhat. I have been doing solid physical work the last 6 months which has kept me in check. Now I have slowed down doing that, it will be interesting to see how things go.
I will have to do a lot of walking and bike riding to compensate I suppose.
Must say, I snack continually. Always hungry.
I have found it to be a suitable medication all the same. Taking 20mg a day. I am not so good without it.
