Hey Mungo,

Escitalopram  is Lexapro.  The med for stopping smoking is Wellbutrin.  But I think it is good you are looking at giving up smoking.

I was on Lexapro but  it did not work for me.  I am now on Wellbutrin and it too is not working.  I seem to be very sensitive to the new medications on the market and may just go back to not using any of the Antidepressants.

Good luck with you medication.
