A 42-year-old male asked:
Understanding deplin and lexapro (escitalopram) somewhat compliment each other, should they be taken together at the same time or spaced out?

Together: Psychiatry experts here at HealthTap have previously answered this question that it is safe to take Deplin (which contains methylfolate, an active form of folic acid/vitamin B6) at the same time as Lexapro (escitalopram). The bigger question is whether it is effective or adds benefit to the response to Lexapro (escitalopram). This seems to be variable and unpredictable. Good luck!
