    Lexapro alternative SSRIs

    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone could suggest some SSRIs that may be close to lexapro or that they have had a good switch over to? My health insurance does not cover lexapro and it will cost me over $100 if I buy it. I was wondering what others are close to lexapro? I love my lexapro because it really has been a true help to my panic attacks. Im sad that I have to find a new drug or spend a lot just to keep it. My doc gives me samples, but I may not be able to get them if hes out. Anyway, thankyou!

    Try Celexa, comes in generic, and is a close relative to Lexapro.

    yeah actually my doc prescribed it. i heard that it isnt as potent at lexapro and so the dosage may have to be upped? also, do i go through the withdrawl from the lexapro and get new side effects from celexa? im worried!

    Supposed to be the same chemical, except the dosing is different on Celexa.
