Heyy...this is Debbie.....just needed to ask a quick question...we have no other family or friends. My daughter, 19, has been having occassional bouts of yellow stool and this morning woke up with a very salty taste in her mouth.She has been on Lexapro, which I remember the doc who put her on it, said she needed liver function tests.We have since moved and her GP, the same as mine, has never mentioned liver tests for her or me, for that matter, because I'm on Lexapro also.She also has headaches every day.
I'm worried about her. Any thoughts?? Sorry about posting off subject.

Your daughter should see her doctor as soon as possible to report those symptoms. Pale stool indicates insufficient bile.

You need to look up side effects of Lexapro - what a LONG list! This can also cause muscle damage/weakness! Also, it says not to stop this cold turkey.
