About Lexapro

What is Lexapro?

Lexapro is the name of a branded antidepressant pill. Escitalopram is the active ingredient in Lexapro that treats depression and anxiety. Lower cost generic versions of the medicine are just as effective as the more expensive branded version. It’s the generic version that our doctors write an online prescription for. Our online consultations are private and affordable and our pharmacy can ship Lexapro to your door on a monthly basis. Lemonaid also prescribes other antidepressants like Prozac, Zoloft, and Wellbutrin.

Can I get Lexapro online?

Yes you can. Lexapro requires a doctor’s prescription. To get one, you can have an online consultation with our doctors. During your video consultation our doctors will help you understand your treatment options and, if appropriate, write you a prescription. Our team can start you on the dosage that’s right for you and then monitor you on a monthly basis. We charge $95 a month for the medication and consultation, shipping included.

How quickly does Lexapro work?

Most people find that it takes 4 to 6 weeks before starting to feel better. It typically takes 12 weeks before Lexapro has the full impact.

What’s a typical starting dose of Lexapro?

You’ll need to discuss what’s right for you with one of our doctors, but the recommended starting dose is 10mg. Most people end up taking either 10mg or 20mg a day. After 4 weeks on the 10mg dose you may want to increase your dosage if it’s not starting to have the beneficial impact you hoped to see.

How does Lexapro work?

Lexapro is part of a group of antidepressants known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor or SSRIs. Paxil, Celexa, Prozac, and Zoloft are other antidepressants in the same class and they all work by increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain. This is how they can positively impact mood, sleep and general sense of well being.
