Reasonable to try?: I'm not aware of any documented interactions with Antibuse or Lexapro (escitalopram) and even if theoretically possible based on metabolism etc..I doubt if it would be clinically significant. One of the problems associated with supplements is concerns about interactions with other supplements and medications. Very little information is available. There are likely other safer & more effective options.
