This is Lois Adams, President and CEO of Freedom Pharmacy in Orlando, Florida. This segment is going to be about generic Lexapro. Generic Lexapro is also called Escitalopram, an SSRI inhibitor which is a Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor. It is used to treat depression and anxiety and it also is the number two prescribed antidepressant in the United States. The drug assures that the Serotonin levels in the brain which effect our moods are sustained in a proper level and function properly. In 2005 the FDA approved a generic version made by the laboratory TIVA. However the brand does not come off patent until 2012. So they bought the manufacturer and the generic product lost. The bottom line is please stay away from any generic Lexapro and any available drug is a bootleg drug which is a copy made in another country that does not have FDA supervision or oversite. This is a little about the drug generic Lexapro.
