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.
