It may not: Usually loose stools are abating by about 14 days out on SSRI's. Recommend that the medication be taken with food. Also discuss addition of probiotics with your doctor.

Lexapro (escitalopram): Hi, it might take few weeks for side effect to go away, if you don't get better in 1-2 wks you might want to consult ur treating doctor to change ur medication. Good luck.
