How Should It Be Stored?

Lexapro should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Both the tablets and liquid should be kept in airtight containers. Keep this drug -- and all medications -- out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Lexapro as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
