Full Report With TOC @

Lexapro (escitalopram) is an SSRI that was developed by Lundbeck; it initially gained marketing approval for MDD in 2002 in the US. Lexapro is the S-enantiomer of citalopram, an SSRI that was also developed by Lundbeck, which first became available in 1989. Lexapro acts by binding with high affinity to serotonin (5-HT), thereby inhibiting serotonin reuptake; this results in the higher levels of serotonin that are believed to exert antidepressant effects.
