First of all, I have never heard tell of giving Lexapro for bi-polar. Secondly, I would look for a second opinion. I work in the children's mental health field and every other kid lately is getting stuck with a bi-polar diagnosis but if you look at the diagnosic info, it states that people should not be diagnosed with this until they are adults.
With that said, I take Lexapro myself and have worked with teens who have taken it for depression and I have never heard of any negative side effects.
What makes the psychiatrist think it is bi-polar?
