Lexapro (escitalopram) is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Lexapro affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression or anxiety.

Lexapro is used to treat anxiety in adults and major depressive disorder in adults and adolescents who are at least 12 years old.

Hello J-Steelo. Lexapro is very similiar to both Paxil, Prozac as well as Zoloft. All are SSRI's and work along much of same chemical formula. Regards, pledge
