Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Lexpro (Escitalopram) is an SSRI
anti-depressant which is used commonly used in the treatment of anxiety disorders. Xanax
(Alprazolam) is a benzodiazepine
Both these medication can be quite effective in controlling symptoms of anxiety. Lexapro
is a safe medication and does not have any addictive potential. It however may take upto 2 weeks to see the effects of the medication. In the initial 1 to 2 weeks there can sometimes be a slight worsening of anxiety due to the medication, but this is only temporary and less likely with a small dose.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
