No, as pledge says, it is an antidepressant and not a controlled substance such as are narcotics and the benzodiazepines.

Hello papajames27. Escitalopram/Lexapro comes from the drug family known as SSRI's or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor's. (Anitdepressant) Regards pledge
OMG Lexapro is an anti depressant and has nothing at all to do with narcotics.
