Hi Suzanne is right. I just wanted to add that Citalopram is used most commonly for depression, while Escitalopram is used most commonly for anxiety. This description i took from ehow website is good:
"Escitalopram and citalopram refer to the generic drugs escitalopram oxalate (Lexapro) and citalopram hydrobromide (Celexa). Rx List notes that escitalopram and citalopram both help treat major depression, but escitalopram has additional utility in general anxiety disorder".

I am just checking to see if lexapro and celexa are 2 totally different medicines or if they are really close to being the same.

So far fluoxetine, Citalopram and Escitalopram have not worked for me... Has anyone else had the same experience before trying Setraline?
