Hi there,
welcome to healthcare magic.If you are on Lexapro(Escitalopram), then its true it causes fatigue, somnolence,nausea as its side effects, although the percentage of these effects is less than 5-6%.Yes, your mother could be right. So pl get the thyroid profile done. And pay a visit to an endocrinologists' office
