About Lexapro

Lexapro is indicated for the acute and maintenance treatment of MDD in adults and adolescents (aged 12-17) and for acute treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) in adults. Lexapro is thought to work by helping to restore the brain's chemical balance. It is believed to increase the availability of serotonin, a substance in the brain thought to influence mood. Since its launch in 2002, Lexapro has been prescribed to more than 18 million patients in the U.S.

Patients of all ages who are started on antidepressant therapy should be monitored appropriately and observed closely for clinical worsening, suicid
