> Hi all, check your news sites, Lexapro was approved today. There are plenty of studies and clinical information posted as well if you havent already found some. (should be in pharmacies 1st week of September)
Yes, I heard about that. I was on Celexa with other meds for a couple of years. Next pdoc appt. is next week though, so no likelihood of any samples available just yet. I am willing to give it a trial. I will be looking at how it differs from Celexa as far as GI problems go (reflux, heartburn, diarrhea). Celexa has been the worst med I have ever taken for reflux trouble (except for a couple of NSAIDS). I am especially sensitive to SSRI's for GI troubles. OTOH, I only ever needed about 2-5mg of Celexa/day (and not much of any other antidepressant for that matter), so I am looking at a trial of 1-2mg of Lexapro every day.
