Some users have experienced weight gain while taking Lexapro, and they have tried different strategies to control it.

Another user suggested focusing on turning the gained weight into muscle and then slowly decreasing weight in the future. It's important to consult with your doctor about any concerns related to weight gain and potential alternative medications or strategies.
