Hello and welcome to

The active ingredient of nexito forte is Escitalopram.

Escitalopram is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Escitalopram affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression or anxiety. Escitalopram may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Do not stop using escitalopram suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

Cold or allergy medicine, sedatives, narcotic pain medicine, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures or anxiety can add to sleepiness caused by escitalopram. You may need to have your dosage increased. Nexito forte may be addictive and you may develop a tolerance to the drug.

You should probably see an allergist to determine the correct course of action. In the meantime, try saline nasal solution to help clear the sinuses. You will continue to have difficulties until the allergy has been controlled.

Be well,
Dr. Kimberly
