Is "escitalopram oxalate" a "MAOI"?
anybody know? thanks.
Asked by Asha Baizer 3 months ago.
Escitalopram oxalate, better known by its common name Lexapro, is a type of antidepressant called a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, which is used to treat depression, anxiety disorders, and some personality disorders. MAOIs, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, are different compounds that are used to treat atypical and severe depressions as a last resort when selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors such as escitalopram oxalate are unsuccessful. So both are different classes of compounds, but are used to treat the same thing. Answered by Christi Daylong 3 months ago.

Loxalate (Escitalopram) Overdose?
Could someone please tell me what would happen if someone overdosed on Loxalate (Escitalopram)
Asked by Kathrine Diosdado 3 months ago.
Lexapro (escitalopram oxalate) is a prescription medication for the treatment of depression and anxiety. Lexapro is an anti-depressant from the family of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs. Lexapro helps to restore the brain's chemical balance by increasing the supply of a substance in the brain called serotonin. If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately. DO NOT SHARE THIS MEDICINE with others for whom it was not prescribed. DO NOT USE THIS MEDICINE for other health conditions. KEEP THIS MEDICINE out of the reach of children. IF USING THIS MEDICINE FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME, obtain refills before your supply runs out. A massive overdose of Lexapro can be fatal. If you suspect an overdose, seek emergency treatment immediately. Typical symptoms of Lexapro overdose include: Dizziness, sweating, nausea, vomiting, tremors, drowsiness, rapid heartbeat, seizures In rare cases, an overdose may also cause memory loss, confusion, coma, breathing problems, muscle wasting, irregular heartbeat, and a bluish tinge to the skin.

Escitalopram Overdose Answered by Verdell Nuetzman 3 months ago.
Sure, it's possible to overdose. But not at 10 mg once a day. If you take it like you're supposed to, you have nothing whatsoever to worry about. You may have some side effects, but every drug has side effects. You're at the lower dose of Lexapro, also. The higher dose of it is 20 mg/day. Even at that dose, there is little chance of overdose/death, unless you're allergic to something in the drug and have a severe allergic reaction or if you are extremely hypersensitive to the drug. Yes people do abuse antidepressants all the time and many people have died from them (and it's NOT a pleasant way to go - seizure, delerium, and death), but that's from being extremely irresponsible on them and/or trying to commit suicide. By the way, Lexapro is one of the best tolerated antidepressants on the market Answered by Tony Esperanza 3 months ago.

It won't kill you I'll tell you that,a good stomache pumping may be needed but that's about it,no antidepressant in and of itself will cause death. Oh yeah,the reason I say that is b/c you would either pass out OR throw up before you could EVER reach enough pills to cause death in most cases...your way more likely to cause some permenant brain damage/retardation like symptoms.

fluoxetine is prozac,,escitalopram is lexapro,drinking on anti-depressants is not recommended,a glass of wine a week will not harm you,please try to stay away from it anyway.the above mentioned drugs are in the ssri family,lexapro,has an anti-anxiety component to it.you are on a very small dosage.as for your doctor issue,,i would see a mental health expert,,a psychiatrist a psychologist,your general practitioner should not be handing out anti-depressants.you can google both drugs ,the site will give you detaied info. on everything you want to know. good luck Answered by Dotty Hocutt 3 months ago.
They are anti-depressants, and alcohol is a depressant. Drinking makes your medicine not work, so if you get bummed out and suicidal without your meds, then you probably shouldn't drink. Whenever I get drunk while on my antidepressant, everything is fine until about 2/3 into the night, and then I just crash and feel like killing myself. Its bad... You're mature enough to make the right decision, just be careful. Answered by Winnifred Martelle 3 months ago.
i myself have been on prozac(fluoxetine) WARNING do not drink on them...i was soooooooo ill ..... these both meds take about 6-8 weeks to work properly, but if ur dc prescribed them. ask him for a second opinon,and get him to refer you to a mental health team who can assess you fully and give u the right meds and listen too you 100% fully... good luck. xxxxx Answered by Salome Ulsh 3 months ago.

Can escitalopram oxalate 10mg cause addiction.?
please tell me if daily intake of this medicine 10mg tab cause addiction,and does it effects the sexual behaviour of a person.
Asked by Kasandra Aseng 3 months ago.
No it will not cause addiction. It is an antidepressant and it does affect levels of dopamine. It has relatively no action on the reward pathways in the brain. It will not cause addiction. Now for sexual activity, anti-deps are known to mess with libido. SSRIs particularly can lower one's libido. Only Wellbutrin doesn't seem to have this effect. But from experience I can say that with Escitalopram, it has the best side-effects profile amongst SSRI anti-depressants and it affects libido (sex drive) the *least*. However, please bear in mind that everybody responds differently to drugs. Hope this helps Answered by Nicol Keliikoa 3 months ago.

Asked by Leon Berni 3 months ago.
The brand name for this product is Lexapro and it is generally used for depression, but can also be used for a host of other things, including anxiety disorders. It falls into the category of SSRI (Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitor) Answered by Shawnda Sheneman 3 months ago.
Lexapro has been approved by the FDA for the following indications: major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. For either indication, the dose is 10mg per day. This medication inhibits the reuptake of serotonin in your brain. Because the neurons are not taking it back in, this will increase the levels of serotonin in your brain.

My doctor prescibed me escitalopram oxalate 10mg to quit smoking marijuarna is there anything i need to know a?
oh he also gave me TEMAZE 10mg
Asked by Renna Parsi 3 months ago.
Yeah, don't take it. Your doctor is an idiot! lol Edit- He/she gave you anti-depressants so that you stop smoking trees which is NOT smart because the anti-depressants he/she prescribed to you wil do you a lot more harm that the trees will do to you. I know how much it SUCKS when you have to stop smoking after a long peroid of time that you've been doing it every day several times a day. It sucks soooo bad & all you can do is think about how great it would be if you could smoke right now i know but the anti-Ds your doctor gave you will not make things any better this is just one drug to cover up another & that's not so smart. I know that the difference for you may be that you need to be able to focus & you can do that better with anti-Ds maybe you need to go to work, or school, or wherever it may be, somewhere that requires focus & not being "high" to do..idk why it is that you're quitting but i can tell you that nothing can be weed,& nothing can take the place of the high weed gave you. Anti-Ds will just get you hooked on the man made stuff & will be a worse choice in the long run. I guess what i'm trying to say is they won't do what they're ment to do which is help you to quit weed. Sorry this kinda feels like a long rant i just can't seem to express my point to you effectively for some reason today...but i hope that at least you get the gist! Haha As for if you will be higher if you take them both together uhm yeah weed enhances the effects of other drugs so most likely you will..haha Peace <2 Answered by Angelique Whitebread 3 months ago.
