Should be OK: This combination should not be a problem. However, 40 mg of Lexapro (escitalopram) is considered an 'off-label' dosage meaning that is higher than the fda recommended daily dosage. That being said, off-label dosages and/or indications is not an uncommon prescribing practice. Questions can be addressed with the actual prescribing provider.
