How to switch Lexapro to Prozac?
In order to switch from Lexapro to Prozac one must fist consult with a physician. The physician might advise you to take a break before switching the medications or it may be possible to switch without taking a break.
It is not recommended that you mix the drugs Prozac and Lexapro. Both of these drugs are anti depressant drugs.
I just saw my Dr. Today because I am switching from Lexapro to Prozac because of weight gain on Lexapro. This is coming from my Dr. You MUST NOT MIX LEXAPRO and PROZAC. They are not compatible chemically. You must allow at least 3 or more days for the one drug to "wash out" of your system before you start the new one. You may need more time than that. Confirm this with your Dr.

To counteract Lexapro withdrawal symptoms, Prozac is highly advisable. This will lessen the feeling of exhaustion and ringing in the ears.
No. Lexapro (escitalopram) is an antidepressant of the SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) type similar to Prozac, Zoloft, and Paxil.
Yes. Probably it's closest relative next to Lexapro.
NO!!! Each of them is an SSRI, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor -- or serotonin booster -- and this will cause problems. i do, seems to work pretty good but i dunno see what works for u, (but really nothing can happen) I take prozac and was having an unusually rough time. My doctor prescribed Lexapro as well to get me over the hump I took Lexapro with Prozac together for a couple of months… Read More
yes, citalopram, but lexapro (escitalopram) is the newer, 'better' version of it. Both are SSRIs. Other SSRIs include Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, etc.
Celexa (citalopram hydrobromide).Lexapro (escitalopram oxalate).Luvox (fluvoxamine).Paxil (paroxetine hydrochloride).Prozac and Prozac Weekly (fluoxetine).Zoloft (sertraline)
I have weaned from Lexapro twice. I was CRAZY the first time. The emotional problems were far beyond measure. I was in a bind financially so I asked my dr to prescribe Prozac because it costs so much less and I had been on it before with no withdrawal symptoms when I quit. I took one 20 mg Prozac and that covered ALL of my withdrawal symptoms. I had been considering weaning from Prozac this… Read More
ill let you kno my doctor just took me off of 60mg of Prozac to 60mg of cybalta.....
Mostly for depression - it is in the same group of drugs as Prozac. Lexapro can also be effective for anxiety and panic disorders. It can also be used for a few other conditions such as OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) and social phobia.
i think it depends on the person. lexapro is used an anti-depressant/anti-anxiety medication. for me, while i was on 10 mg lexapro, it was useless. then my doctor switched me to prozac, which is more commonly used in treating eating disorders. so far that in combination with counseling and therapy, has been helpful
Yes. I am not a doctor, however, I took Effexor for over 12 years and switched to Prozac because I absolutely hated the side effects of Effexor. I took both medications for two weeks before tapering off the Effexor. Many people that have taken Effexor have very uncomfortable withdrawals, including myself, especially if they have taken it over a long period of time. I desperately wanted off Effexor so My doctor suggested I switch to… Read More
No , this cock-tail makes me feel young and ready to cum. I sometimes get the urge to just let it all go.
The highest usual dose for lexapro is 20mg. So 30 will not help you. Sometimes a higher dose is used for OCD, but it probably won't help. Switch down to 20!

WHICH antidepression med is the best for really bad agoraphoia can't or don't want to leave my home I just got off Prozac and now I am trying Lexapro.?

I tried going off cymbalta but the withdrawal symptoms were so horrible! I asked the doctor to put me on something else that would help, and she switched me to lexapro, which put an end to my withdrawal symptoms to cymbalta almost immediately. I am now trying to come off lexapro and it is significantly easier.
It is known that serotonin may cause bronchial constriction (tight airways) and increase the amount of histamine that is released. Probably, for these reasons all well-known SSRIs (like Lexapro, Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Prozac) might cause different breathing problems (like cough, wheezing or even asthma).
i wouldn't worry too much about weaning off of Prozac... it's acclimating to effexor (and weaning off of it) that's tough. that said, effexor worked wonderfully for me, pulling me out of a very deep hole. it's just that it has side effects that can be pretty rough.
I wouldn't suggest it at all. Just from personal experience, I developed a moderate case of serotonin syndrome while weening myself off Lexapro to switch to Cymbalta. Had I taken my regular dosage of Lexapro (20mg) with the 20mg of Cymbalta, I probably would have ended up in the ER.
There are many different anti-depressant medications. These SSRIs (Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors) work to increase the levels of seratonin in the brain. Common ones are Prozac, Luvox, Zoloft, Paxil, Lexapro, Celexa.

Generally Fluoxetine (US: Prozac) does not cause significant weight gain, but it has stronger sexual side effects. Also Escitalopram (US: Lexapro, EU: Cipralex) should not cause much weight gain.
Seroxat a brand name for paroxetine, commonly known as Paxil. It is an SSRI antidepressant used to treat depression, axiety disorders, as well as OCD. It's similar to other SSRIs like Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro, etc.
Cymbalta is an SNRI, meaning it increases both serotonin and norepinephrine, while lexapro is an SSRI, meaning it increases only serotonin. These drugs that inhibit the reuptake of neurotransmitters MUST BE SWITCHED GRADUALLY. If switching from cymbalta to lexapro, the physician should induce a "step-down" therapy on the cymbalta while inducing a "step-up" therapy on lexapro. This ensures a level amount of drug in the blood, and minimizes the chance of recurrence and adverse effects.
