In brief: No

Nexium (esomeprazole) taken with Lexapro can cause significant side effects by intensifying the effects of the Lexapro to bring about confusion, hallucination, heart issues etc.
Ambien may also be an issue with Lexapro even though the fda has not reported anything, internet reviews from consumers have spoke of side effects. Please consult your physician before you mix these medicines. Take care.
