Lexapro and Its Uses

Generic Lexapro is a type of antidepressant known as a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI).

Generic Lexapro affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression.

Generic Lexapro is used to treat depression.

As a member of the class of medications known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), Generic Lexapro offers some advantages in increasing the supply of serotonin in the brain that has resulted in a more powerful, yet better-tolerated, medication for the treatment of depression and GAD.

The symptoms of depression and anxiety are believed to be caused by an imbalance in the brain of serotonin, a chemical that affects mood. Generic Lexapro was derived by isolating the Celexa (Citalopram HBr) molecule, known as an isomer. This has provided Lexapro with treatment benefits beyond Celexa.

Lexapro Mechanism Lexapro Working

Generic Lexapro acts on nerve cells in the brain. In the brain there are numerous different chemical compounds called neurotransmitters. These act as chemical messengers between the nerve cells. Serotonin is one such neurotransmitter and has various functions.

When serotonin is released from nerve cells in the brain it acts to lighten mood. When it is reabsorbed into the nerve cells, it no longer has an effect on mood. It is thought that when depression occurs, there may be a decreased amount of serotonin released from nerve cells in the brain.

SSRIs work by preventing serotonin from being reabsorbed back into the nerve cells in the brain. This helps prolong the mood lightening effect of any released serotonin. In this way, Generic Lexapro helps relieve depression, panic and fear.

Food and Drug Interactions with Lexapro

Generic Lexapro should not be taken at the same time as monoamine oxidase inhibitor medicines (MAOIs). These include monoamine oxidase inhibitor antidepressants such as phenelzine, tranylcypromine and moclobemide, and the antibiotic linezolid. Generic Lexapro should not be started until at least at least a day after stopping moclobemide or linezolid, and until at least two weeks after stopping other monoamine oxidase inhibitors. Similarly, treatment with any MAOIs should not be started until at least one week after Lexapro has been stopped.

As SSRIs have been associated with bleeding abnormalities, the following medicines, which are known to affect the ability of the blood to clot, should be used with caution with Lexapro:

  • tricyclic antidepressants
  • some antipsychotic medicines
  • some antisickness medicines, e.g. prochlorperazine
  • aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen
  • anticoagulants such as warfarin
  • ticlopidine
  • dipyridamole.

There may be an increased risk of side effects if Lexapro is taken with the following, which also enhance the activity of serotonin in the brain:

  • selegiline
  • lithium
  • triptans for migraine, e.g. sumatriptan
  • tryptophan.

The herbal remedy St John's Wort should not be taken with Lexapro for the same reason.

The blood level of Lexapro may be increased by the following medicines:

  • omeprazole
  • cimetidine.

Generic Lexapro may increase the blood levels of the following medicines:

  • flecainide
  • propafenone
  • metoprolol
  • antidepressants such as desipramine, clomipramine, nortriptyline
  • antipsychotics such as risperidone, thioridazine, haloperidol
Treatment with Generic Lexapro may alter control of blood sugar in people with diabetes, who may need an adjustment in their dose of insulin or antidiabetic tablets. People with diabetes should discuss this with their doctor.
