Can Lexapro (escitalopram) cause hypoglycemia?

Rare, but yes: 0.7% of people on Lexapro (escitalopram) have had hypoglycemia.Many were on Insulin or setoquel. Some were not. 50% had resolution when the drug was stopped, making it likely that these were the ones where Lexapro (escitalopram) was the cause. That would theoretically bring the risk to about 0.35% or 35/10, 000 users. Sorry if it's happening to you. Wish you had won a more profitable lottery. ...Read more

Took Lexapro (escitalopram) 10mg for two days then dr said to quit cause side effects. Today is 2nd day not taking it I feel lil better. How long til out of system?

Half-life = 24-25hrs: So, after a day off, you'd have 5mg, the 2nd day, you'd have 2.5mg, 3rd, 1.25 and so on - that's very low - so you should be free of the nasty side effects soon. Clearly, you ae sensitive and before you start ANY medications take the time to read up on them and fully discuss them w/ your provider. Some are very hard to stop. Non-pharma psychotherapy might be a choice to consider. Best! ...Read more
