In brief: Not from what I know

The possible risks of it mixed w/ Lexapro (escitalopram) are serious.
Irregular heart beats that can be lethal are rare but possible. Common problems are dizzy, faint, queasy feelings and more. Be careful and balance your need with the risks. Perhaps there ae behavioral things like freq stops to walk - snacks or water - fresh air - music - etc. Best wishes.
