Hi,

Nexito contains escitalopram. It belongs to the group of anti-depressant medication known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), used in the treatment of depression, anxiety disorder, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder etc. This medication may cause suicidal thoughts, hopelessness, lack of concentration, talking negatively etc.

These side effects usually improve with discontinuation of treatment but stop taking this medication abruptly may cause some unpleasant symptoms that are known as withdrawal syndrome. If someone experiences side effects during using this medication, he should immediately inform his prescribing doctor for medical help.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
