Lexamil contains the active ingredient Escitalopram, which is an SSRI antidepressant and these are know to cause weight gain, in some people.

However, you are already doing one of the best things you can do to combat any possible problem and that is staying active. You may also want to watch your diet, more closely. The reason most people gain weight on these is because their effect on brain chemicals cause an increase in appetite and those who experience this side effect usually just go with it and eat more, even if they don't really need to.


Are there any other questions?
