Take the generic form of lexapro (escitalopram) and I have constipation, average of 1 bm per 7 day period. Is it safe to drink magnesium citrate to relieve?

See answer. How do you know your constipation is from Lexapro (escitalopram)? See your pcp to make sure there are no other reasons. Changes to your diet, eg. increasing fiber, eliminating processed foods, and increased exercise should be considered before taking any more meds. I hope this helps.
You are. much better off taking WATER and LOTS OF IT! Most constipation due to medications respond to increased fluids and medication like Metamucil (bulk) Try to avoid harsher bowel purges like MgCitrate! Hope this helps! Dr Z.
