What is LEXAPRO and what is it used for?

• LEXAPRO 10 mg film-coated tablets, each containing 10 mg of escitalopram, are oval, white, notched, film-coated tablets with an "E" on one side of the notch on one side of the tablet and an "L" on the other.

• LEXAPRO is offered to the market in packages of 28, 56 and 84 tablets.

• LEXAPRO contains escitalopram. This drug is used in depression (major depressive conditions) and anxiety disorders such as agoraphobia (fear of open space) or panic disorder without agoraphobia, social anxiety (anxiety) disorder and generalized anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive (obsessive-compulsive) disorder.

• Escitalopram belongs to a group of antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). These drugs increase serotonin levels by affecting the serotonin system in the brain. It is accepted that the disorder in the serotonin system is an important factor in the development of depression and similar diseases.

It may take a few weeks before you start to feel better. Continue using LEXAPRO even if it takes some time for you to see improvement in your condition.

If you do not feel better or if you feel worse, you should discuss this with a doctor.
3.How to use LEXAPRO?

LEXAPRO is not expected to interact with alcohol. However, as with many medicines, LEXAPRO is not recommended to be taken with alcohol.

Pregnancy

Consult your doctor or pharmacist before using this medication.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or are planning a pregnancy. If you are pregnant, do not use LEXAPRO without discussing the risks and benefits with your doctor.

If you have used LEXAPRO in the last 3 months of pregnancy, you should be aware that the following effects may occur in your newborn baby: difficulty breathing, bluish skin, seizures, body temperature changes, feeding difficulties, vomiting, low blood sugar, rigid or loose muscles, excessive reflexes, tremors, restlessness, irritability, lethargy, constant crying, drowsiness and sleep disturbances. If your baby has any of these symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.

Be sure to tell your doctor that you are using LEXAPRO. Medicines such as LEXAPRO that you use during your pregnancy, especially in the last 3 months of your pregnancy, may increase the risk of developing a serious condition in your newborn baby called persistent pulmonary hypertension. This condition causes your baby to breathe more often and appear bluish. These symptoms usually begin within the first 24 hours after the baby's birth. If this happens in your baby, consult your doctor immediately.

If you are taking LEXAPRO during pregnancy, the medication should never be stopped abruptly.

If you notice that you are pregnant during your treatment, consult your doctor or pharmacist immediately.

Breast-feeding

Consult your doctor or pharmacist before using this medication.

LEXAPRO is expected to pass into breast milk. It is not recommended to use LEXAPRO if you are breastfeeding, but you can use it if your doctor finds it appropriate after discussing the risks and benefits with your doctor.

Fertility:

Citalopram, a drug such as escitalopram, has been shown to reduce the quality of sperm in animal studies. Theoretically, this may affect fertility, but its effect on human fertility has not been observed yet.

Vehicle and machine use

Until you understand how LEXAPRO affects you, it is not recommended to drive or use machinery.
