Experts in Prescription Drug Withdrawal
Simple tapering program to help you withdraw from Lexapro
LEXAPRO is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) and is manufactured by Lundbeck and Forest Laboratories. LEXAPRO is also known as Escitalopram and only required 3.5 years to develop, in large part due to their previous release of Celexa, or Citalopram, which has a very similar pharmacology. Of all the SSRIs currently on the market, LEXAPRO has the highest affinity for the human Serotonin transporter, or the protein that transports Serotonin. This protein is also the target of stimulants drugs such as amphetamines and cocaine.
Serotonin influences the cardiovascular, renal, immune and gastrointestinal systems, and is essential to regulate body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure and the sympathetic nervous system. Therefore, stopping LEXAPRO incorrectly can adversely affect many areas of the body. Gradual dose reduction (also known as tapering), combined with specific nutritional support is recommended to support the body and brain during the withdrawal process

What is Lexapro?
(Cipralex, Escitalopram, Lexaprin, Lexamil, Sipralexa, Esertia, Enact, Serople)
Lexapro (Escitalopram) is a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor Antidepressant. Lexazpro 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 Lexapro significantly.
