Lexapro is an advanced reliable remedy to balance mental and mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. Lexapro’s active agent Escitalopram Oxalate is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor which aids in serotonergic activity in the central nervous system. Serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter which is located in the gastrointestinal tract (90%), blood platelets, and the central nervous system. Serotonin is responsible for the feelings of well-being and happiness.
If you have mood problems look for therapist advice first, do not prescribe any medications for yourself. It is extremely important not to exceed Escitalopram dosage without consulting the therapist or physician. Also it is not safe to stop your serotonergic activity treatment in the middle as side effects may occur. It is better to avoid alcohol beverages along with Escitalopram therapy. Please be aware that Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) such as Escitalopram interacts with Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor (MAOI) like Isocarboxazid, Phenelzine and Rasagiline. It should be a gap of at least 14 days between taking these medicines.
Lexapro comes in tablets (5 mg, 10 mg and 20 mg escitalopram base) and in a form of oral solution (1 mg/mL escitalopram base). You can take it either on empty stomach or with food every day at the same time. If you’ve missed a dose take it asap unless it’s time for your next dose. In this case skip the dose.
To test Lexapro formulation efficacy three placebo-controlled, multicenter studies for major depressive and generalized anxiety disorders were held. Each study lasted 8 weeks. All test persons suffered from major depressive disorder or generalized anxiety disorder (according to DSM-IV criteria) and were between 18 and 65 years old for depression issue and between 18 and 80 years old for anxiety issue.
There were 2 fixed dose Lexapro studies. First study compared 10 and 20 mg/day Lexapro to placebo and 40 mg/day Citalopram. Second study compared 10 mg/day Lexapro and placebo. In a flexible dose study Lexapro ranged between 10 and 20 mg/day compared to placebo and Citalopram ranged between 20 and 40 mg/day.
During these studies Lexapro demonstrated great efficacy in improving test persons condition compared to placebo according to the Montgomery Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) and Hamilton Anxiety Scale (HAM-A).
In vitro and in vivo studies in animals proved that Escitalopram reduces serotonin reuptake not influencing dopamine and noradrenaline neuronal reuptake.
Lexapro side effects include insomnia or drowsiness (weakness), dizziness and nausea, gases and diarrhea, heartburn and weight changes. Allergic reactions such as rashes, difficulty breathing and swelling may occur.
Serious Lexapro side effects almost never happens if you follow instructions and do not exceed prescribed dose. If you breach prescriptions, mix Escitalopram with alcohol or with Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor you can suffer from high fever and sweating, vomiting and appetite loss, rigid muscles and fast heartbeats, tremors and overactive reflexes, confusion and memory problems.
