Experts in Prescription Drug Withdrawal
Escitalopram Withdrawal Can Be Accomplished While Living Your Life
Escitalopram was approved by the FDA in 2002 and is often referred to as an example of "evergreening" which is the strategy used by pharmaceutical companies to slightly change a drug that is nearing the end of its patent in order to acquire a new patent for this version. Cipralex lost its patent protection two years after Escitalopram was launched into the market.
The discontinuation syndrome associated with Escitalopram can cause a host of withdrawal symptoms. This is especially true when Escitalopram is abruptly discontinued, but can occur with a rapid reduction. The symptoms can include electric shock sensations (brain zaps), an increase in depression, severe gastrointestinal symptoms, aggression or irritability, and loss of libido. The manufacturer of Escitalopram, Forest Labs, recommends a gradual dose reduction, but no recommendations are provided.

What is Escitalopram?
(Lexapro, Cipralex, Lexaprin, Lexamil, Sipralexa, Esertia, Enact, Serople)
Escitalopram (Lexapro) is a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor Antidepressant. Escitalopram is the same molecular formula of bonded atoms as Citalopram, an earlier version of the medication and has side effects typical for the SSRI class, with insomnia, nausea, sexual dysfunction and numerous others being reported. Caution should be used when combining Lexapro with St. John’s Wort or with any cough medication that contains dextromethorphan as there is a risk of Serotonin Syndrome, a potentially life-threatening increase in Serotonin levels. Omeprazole can also increase the blood levels of Escitalopram significantly.
