Yes it is normal for the doctors to give out sample medications to their patients. Usually after that, if it works well, they write a prescription. But if you have money difficulties, often they continue with the samples to help you out.
I hope that this helps your husband. Lexapro is fairly new, I think it has only been around a couple of years and it has good results.
I hope that this helps you some.
