SSRI: Lexapro (escitalopram) is an antidepressant (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor-ssri) used to treat depression and anxiety. It works by restoring the balance of certain natural substances (neurotransmitters such as serotonin) in the brain. Lexapro (escitalopram) may improve your feelings of well-being and energy level and decrease nervousness.
