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.
