Hi, my doc switched me from Celexa to Lexapro a month ago. So far it's been keeping my anxiety down and I haven't had a depressive episode(crying jags etc) for this month. I feel happy and some self confidence is coming back. I give Lexapro a thumbs up. Hope this helps. Cathleen

It really does work. I tried it for a while, however didn't like the side effects, as everyone reacts differently to these sorts of meds. Lexapro works well for both anxiety and depression. The one thin to remember about SSRI's is that they take a while to kick in... around two weeks.
hope that this is of some help,
