I thought Valium was an anti-depressant also. I've read what SSRI is, but do not know what that means. Benzo?? Heard the term before, but again, do not know what that means? Can you please clarify. When I checked up on Lexapro, it looked like it was a lower strength of Valium. Sorry, I am no doctor, just trying to figure some things out. Thanx for your time,
