The study that Forest did and that the FDA oversaw indicated that 10 mg Lexapro was equivalent in antidepressant effect to at least 40 mg. (Are you suggesting that there was no such study and that Forest's claims are fraudulent?) This is why psychiatrists (American ones at least) have been instructed to prescribe at a 1 to 4 ratio. And so far, it seems to be working. It's the patients who've been prescribed at a 1 to 2 ratio that are reporting problems. That's why I'm comparing 10 and 20 mg lex to 40 and 80 celex. I thought it was strange at first as well and certainly did not expect to feel any changes when I switched meds. The hypothesis is that the inactive isomer inhibits the effectiveness of the active one. Have you tried both drugs?
