welcome to health care magic

Nexito contains escitalopram 10 mg which is an efficacious antidepressant (SSRI) with minor side effects. Prothiaden is a TCA which is again an antidepressant. You have been prescribed adequate dosages. So no need to be worried. Continue the medication for adequate duration as prescribed. Have faith in your doctor.
Good Luck
