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.
They are both SSRI's but two different SsRI are not the same. One may work, or neither one or both will. Usually you don't take both.
Hi, they are similar medications. Escitalopram is usually prescribed for anxiety, whereas Citalopram is usually prescribed for depression. This isn't always the case, but it is the general rule
Lexapro is used in the treatment of anxiety; depression; generalized anxiety disorder and belongs to the drug class selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
Celexa is used in the treatment of anxiety and stress; depression; postpartum depression and belongs to the drug class selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
