Taking lexapro, (escitalopram) post-heart attack, for 6 yrs. Weaned off. Last pill taken june 20. Now has swelling in legs and severe anxiety. Could these be related?

2 different issues. Issue #1: the leg swelling is most likely unrelated to lexapro, (escitalopram) but very possible with heart issues. Please work with your cardiologist on this. Issue #2: someone tapering off Lexapro (escitalopram) could also have their previous anxiety symptoms return. Please discuss with psychiatrist once #1 is dealt with.
