I dropped nearly all of my Lexapro on the floor in my dorm room kitchen which is simply filthy. I picked up all the pills and put them back into the bottle but I'm sort of worried about taking them after they were on such a filthy floor. Is there any way I can sanitize them to ease my concern?
How do I sanitize Lexapro I dropped on a dirty floor?

Why don't you call your doctor to explain what happened. I would get a new prescription and throw those ones away.
I don't know if you can 'sanitize' them, but you can use the ones you didn't drop first; brush any filth off the ones you dropped, and they should be fine (all germs dead unless exposed to Hep-B) in a couple of days. If they got wet, I'd call a pharmacist and ask what to do.
