Hey pennyt,

NO, Antidepressants are not interchangeable. You need to taper off one while starting another. You need to get the Lexapro refilled as soon as possible so to avoid withdrawal like symtpoms. Can you do that?

The two, Lexapro (escitalopram) and Celexa (citalopram), are very similar in chemical structure but still not the same so I don't recommend you substitute one for the other.
