Welcome to health care magic
I can understand your situation. I appreciate your effort to seek online support.
Escitalopram is an SSRI
which is used as an antidepressant. It causes mild side effects like nausea
, loose stools, sedation and that too during initial days. Blood shot eyes and other symptoms described by you could be due to some other reason which needs evaluation by a general practitioner.
Don't worry and relax. Discuss all this with your treating doctor for readjustment of the dose if required
Hope it helps
