Thanks for asking!: Psych meds including Lexapro (escitalopram) have different effects on different people re weight gain and loss 'cause we all have diff metabolic rates and diff combos of enzymes involved in the very complex system that either allows us to gain or lose. Best approaches to wgt loss broad diet w/portion control, attention to caloric intake, reg exercise & good sleep patterns.

Potentially: Any increase in serotonin reduces satiety, or the sense of "fullness" after eating, and people often find themselves eating more. But if you are very mindful and conscious of what you take in your mouth, it doesn't have to cause problems.
