    Anyone on Lexapro?

    I am on Citalopram and struggling big time in the last couple of months. So much naxiety, dizzyness and total lack of concentration.

    I was thinking of going on Lexapro. Has anyone had any experiences on this med. I also hear that it is best taken alongside Wellbutrin ?

    I suffer from generalized anxiety, for the last 15 years on & off.
    Had some good times when on Seroxat but its stopped working after a few years, a nightmare to come off.

    My doctor wants me to go on Prozac but I don't think it is much good for anxiety.

    Any info would be good at the moment

    Thank you

    Hi Ash,

    I took Lexapro for about 3 years and it was a miracle for me. My symptoms went away within 4 days of starting it. I know that meds are different for everyone but honestly this was my lifesaver.

    Maybe you should just give it a try and see for yourself.

    Take care

    Lexapro (escitalopram) is just a stronger version of citalopram - they're essentially the same drug. My doctor reckons that there's no point switching to Lexapro (it's called Cipralex here) if citalopram doesn't work - but you never know - there are people that claim it did help.
    Wellbutrin (bupropion) is only prescribed in this country for smoking cessation - not as an AD.
