Dear Ma'am/Sir, Lexapro
is a trade name & Escitalopram is the generic name for the same. So basically there has been no change of drug.
Some people do have Central serous retinopathy(CSR:swelling of retina
) rarely as a complication.
But matter of fact Escitalopram has been proven by research to have resolved & reduced recurrences of CSR, which is the reason why the ophthalmologist wanted to take you as study subject(you contradict the research).
Please stop taking stress
& sleep well....because stress and insomnia
are the primary cause of swollen retina.
Hope you get well soon....
