This is Kitt. Lexapro is a member of the group of prescription drugs called SSRIs.
These drugs help relieve the symptoms of depression by increasing the available supply of serotonin in the brain.
I did a trial run on it a whie back and it did not work for me but I have read many members that do well on it.
Please discuss any questions re side effects and weaning off the medication befor you start on a new med.
Good Luck and take care.

I take 20 mg Lexapro every night - have for a few years. I wouldn't be without it. It does make me sleepy though - so take it a night. I can't recommend it highly enough.
I am so happy the Lexapro is working for you. Its a blessing when we find a med that can help us have a better quality of life. Keep us up to date with how you are going.
