I am considering trying escitalopram oxalate 5mg & was wondering is it more effective than citalopram.
Well no because Lexapro is half of Celexa essentially. I personally like Celexa more because its a calmer drug
Jon, Just as Pete has said these two are like cousins of each other and with that being said some people do better on one than the other but one good thing also about Celexa is it peaks out at the blood level faster so most do get some relief faster if it is going to work for you, And most of the doctors well start with Celexa, and change one step up to Lexapro if you are not getting relief from the Celexa. There is just enough difference in them that what works for one person does not always work the same for another. Good luck to you and remember whatever you take you have to stay on it and take it about the same time each day.
