Headache, dizziness, sensitive eyes. Caused by Lexapro?

Hi I ve had a constant headache, dizziness and my eyes are sensitive to light for over a week now, I m currently on anti depressants, I have been these for 9 weeks. Would the tablets I m on ( lexapro ) be causing this constant headaches etc. Also in the last few days I have notice when I inhale or yawn the sides of my stomach are hurting like when I was nearly full term pregnant when my tummy was full of baby, but that is definitely not the case now?

Your current symptoms are unlikely to be due to lexapro.

The most likely cause could be migraine, where one could get headache, dizziness and sensitivity to light as you have.

You could take rizatriptan or sumatriptan to relieve the current symptoms.

If symptoms persist, you could consult a neurologist.

Wishing you good health,
