Do any anti-depressants such as lexapro cause hair loss?
Antidepressants do cause hair loss (see Lexapro information on drugs.com). Stress is also a cause of hair loss on those who are impacted with the genetic balding defect. There is a chicken and egg scenario here; which comes first? Speak with your doctor about switching medications or in helping you deal with the stress of life that may be accelerating your hair loss if you are genetically prone.
