Best Answer

Discontinuation symptoms of Lexapro include restlessness and depression. Irregular menses are usually caused by hormonal imbalances; if you experience changes in your menstrual cycle, consult a physician.

Can Lexapro cause a missed period?

Many anti-depressants have a side effect of delayed or missed periods. With Lexapro, this side effect is not one of the more common ones, but it is a possible one. Likewise, withdrawing frin Lexapro may also result in a missed period. If you miss a period on Lexapro, you should first test to see if you are pregnant. Missed periods are commonplace and happen to most women at some point in their lives. If you are extremely worried, if there are other complications, or if you have missed more than three periods in a row, see a doctor.

Periods can be missed for a variety of reasons besides pregnancy. Some women just have irregular periods. Extreme stress can cause periods to temporarily stop. Women who have very low body fat like ballerinas often stop menstruating. Female athletes, especially those who rigorously train for long-distance events like triathlons or marathons often stop menstruating. Menopause or peri-menopause can begin as early as your 20s and cause light or missed periods. Either way, if your periods have been regular in the past and now you've missed three, I would see an ob/gyn.
