Does Lexapro Commonly Have A Side Effect Of Increased Gas?

Answer

Thank you for your question and welcome to Health Central's Anxiety Community.

Increased gas is not listed on the common side effects of Lexapro, however, because medication effects everyone differently, it is not possible to list every possible side effect. Those listed in the prescribing information are those that were found to be in at least 2 percent of those participating in clinical trials.

The digestive side effects listed include:

Nausea
Diarrhea
Constipation
Indigestion
Abdominal Pain

I would suggest talking with your doctor to determine if there is anything you can do to reduce this.
