Lexapro and low blood pressure
Hi, ive been taking 10mg lexapro for nearly 12 months due to ptsd. My blood pressure has always been low but in the last 8 months or so ive been having readings  around 108/51 or as low as 96/44 and im wondering if lexapro could have made my b.p even lower than normal and want to know how dangerous this is. I do get lightheaded a lot and wondering what other symptoms could b related to this. Im not sure how well this med is working, my anxiety/panic attacks seem to have lessened but i have depressive episodes that last a week or two and this was not happening for that length of time b4.
Thx.

I had a similar experience with Celexa, which is a very similar drug (celexa is citalopram, lexapro is escitalopram).  I also had low blood pressure (78/58 at one point), and worsening depression, which really wasn't helpful since that's what I was taking it for.  I was only on it for 4 weeks though...
