Discussions that mention lexapro

Open to All Other Health Topics board


My son went for his annual physical recently - we were also talking with the dr. about him taking Lexapro for anxiety/depression. I'm on Lexapro for GAD and I see the very same symptoms/mannerisms in my son that I experienced before I was on it. Dr. had agreed to try him on it and he had already started it a week before the visit.

A few weeks after his physical I got a bill for lab services - called the Dr. office to see what tests had been done since everything should be covered for a physical. Dr. called back and said he had done a drug screen... He said he didn't want to alarm ds and/or accuse him of drug use - but WHY couldn't he have told me?

Would you feel violated/betrayed if this was you/your son and is this legal???
