Hello shawn;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Lexapro is a SSRI by name Escitalopram and is a antidepressant .Oxyelite pro has Bacopa monneri which is a herbal part and the effect is not known;also it is not known what is the drug interaction that can happen when oxyelite pro is used with other drugs which are antidepressant so it is better to avoid the use along with Lexapro and if at all you need to use it please consult your doctor who prescribed Lexapro for depression he will be better person to give opinion regarding the combine use of the two.Do not use with out advice from your doctor.
Thanks
