lexapro belongs to a class of medicine also known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), and they as a class may diminish the effect of thyroid medicine if you are taking it. if you are not, it should not effect you.
given your hashimoto, you probably still needs your thyroids tested on a routine basis to monitor it's level, at least once a year. take care.
