Re: I Really Need Ppl's Opinions

From a clinical standpoint, you really are better off using the Lexapro on a daily basis and then only using Xanax occassionally as needed and ONLY when needed. One of the reasons is that you don't want to set up a situation that forces you to feel like you cannot do anything with popping a pill...it sets up a pattern of dependent, addictive behavior.

Secondly, Lexapro works entirely different from Xanax in that in attempts to elevate serotonin levels in the brain. When serotonin levels are stabilized, the need for a sedative medication like Xanax is usually greatly reduced.
