Were you looking for information about Lexapro? Lexipro is a common misspelling of Lexapro.

Lexapro® (escitalopram oxalate) is a prescription drug that is commonly used for treating depression and generalized anxiety disorder. The medicine works by helping to block the reuptake of a chemical in the brain called serotonin. A few common Lexapro side effects include nausea, insomnia, and headache. Some of the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before you take Lexapro include diabetes, seizures or epilepsy, and bipolar disorder (manic-depression) or a family history of bipolar disorder.
