I have also had tachycardia episodes on Lexapro.

QT interval effects are a known side effect of Citalopram and Escitalopram (Lexapro). Heart attacks have been associated with high dosages. But the risk is quite low (supposedly). I use this for motivation to exercise more, which lowers the risk of heart problems in general.

Has anyone else had rapid heart beat on Lexapro?
