Mechanism of Action

The mechanism of antidepressant action of escitalopram, the S-enantiomer of racemic citalopram, is presumed to be linked to potentiation of serotonergic activity in the central nervous system (CNS) resulting from its inhibition of CNS neuronal reuptake of serotonin (5-HT).

Indication

Lexapro® is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) indicated for:

  • Acute and Maintenance Treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in adults and adolescents aged 12-17 years
  • Acute Treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) in adults
