Sorry, i just thought, apparently it is safe to combine Lexapro with Melatonin. To be extra safe i would check with your doctor or pharmacist also...

My psychiatrist encouraged me to take melatonin while I was on Lexapro. I was pleased that she recommended an innocuous drug instead of writing a prescription for another psychtropic.

Yes, Melatonin should have been the first medication i thought of! I have taken it also with great results!
