In brief: Lexapro/Prozac

Possible since every person's tolerance differs from another. When Lexapro (escitalopram) first came out, it was the improved form of celexa, with less stomach & bowel side-effects, but I have seen patients that can tolerate different ssri's differently.
Your doctor can give you good suggestions regarding switch.
