Although the US FDA does not oversee any medication sold in Canada, prescription medications sold in Canada are generally felt to be relatively safe and of good quality. Escitalopram (generic for Lexapro) and aripiprazole (generic for Abilify) may be prescribed for usage at the same time (i.e., there are no major contraindications to their use together). In summary, one should be able to safely use generic Lexapro from Canada and generic Abilify safely is taken as directed.

Is it safe to take zanax to help with withdrawal from Lexapro?

Xanax can be prescribed by your doctor alongside lexapro and taking them at the same time is okay. I am on Lexapro and take Xanex for occasional bouts of anxiety or panic attacks. However, weening yourself off Lexapro with Xanex is probably not the best idea. If you are having withdrawal from Lexapro you should probably go back on it.
