lexapro is one of many prozac type meds, an antidepressant
all antidepressant meds can sometimes help with anxiety and panic attacks as well as depression
this was originally shown about 30 years ago but took time to become popular
nobody knows exactly how these meds work, its hust theories, however its known that often they do work
It's great to hear that your friend had positive results and she's feeling better. I'm currently on Celexa and I believe it's the same as Lexapro just not as strong. The psychiatrist said that it would help tremendously with my anxiety.
