A friend of mine that is a Rep called me today and said she was told the doc will no longer be getting Lexapro samples. Its going generic after the first of the year. Has anyone else heard this. i have been getting samples because I have no ins and it is so high. So I don't know what I will do, ask my doc when i see him I guess. Von-1
Has anyone heard Lexapro, going generic?

Lexapro is not expected to be available in generic form until at least 2012, when the patent for Lexapro expires. Escitalopram is often mistakenly referred to as the generic version of Lexapro, but it is actually the medicine's active ingredient. Until an approved generic version is available, do not buy anything claiming to be "generic Lexapro."
Ask your doc to give as many samples as he possibly can my friend.-
All the best,
