Lexapro Medicine for Anxiety

Lexapro® (escitalopram oxalate) is a type of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor that is commonly used for treating conditions of the brain. While it is primarily used for treating depression, healthcare providers may also prescribe the medicine Lexapro for anxiety (specifically, generalized anxiety disorder).
 
The medication comes in both tablet and liquid form, and is typically taken once a day. Your healthcare provider will recommend an appropriate dosage based on your age, the specific condition being treated, and other existing conditions you may have.
 
Before you begin taking Lexapro for anxiety or depression, talk to your healthcare provider if you have bipolar disorder (or a family history of bipolar disorder), diabetes, liver disease, or any allergies.
