Lexapro is technically an antidepressant which is also used for anxiety - and Xanax is an antianxiety drug which is also used for depression with anxiety. They do work differently though prescribed for similar conditions.
It would be best to see your doctor to get an accurate diagnosis and the best treatment for your condition.

Lexapro seems to be prescribed more for chronic conditions because it takes a while to build up a half-life or effective dose. Xanax works from the first dose but doesn't last as long in the body which is why is usually is given for panic or anxiety attacks. I have taken both in the past- lexapro for GAD and then xanax as needed for panic attacks.
