    Does everyone gain weight on lexapro? It really seems to help my pain somehow, but I can't deal with weight gain.

    Hi... have been on it just a month, but haven't gained any weight. It has really helped me, too, with depression. Good luck....Ann

    I have only been on it for 3 weeks, for fibromyalgia, and as far as the pain goes, it seems to help. Do you find yourself having night sweats with it?

    I have gained weight with Lexapro. It works good for the depression, but the weight gain is the worse side effect for me. It seems I'm always hungry. Snacking constantly. My normal walking is not helping to keep the weight down or off.
    Have night sweats also, usually shortly after I go to sleep.

    My doctor is going to wean me off of it and on to something different to see if it will work the same without the weight gain.

    Glad to know someone else has this also.
