It may be taken while taking other medications, except for drugs such as Celexa. Patients with depression are usually recommended a dose of 10m a day while patients with generalized anxiety disorder are recommended 10 to 20 mg a day. The effects may be fully enjoyed if the drug has been taken regularly for a long period of time.
During your medical consultation, your doctor will ask if you have liver or kidney disease and if you are experiencing mania, seizures or any thoughts of suicide. These conditions may make your doctor change your dosage or put you under observation while undergoing Lexapro medication. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to get pregnant or breastfeeding. The drug may or may not be harmful to your unborn child but may have effects on a nursing baby.
Take a dose as soon as you remember missing it but skip missed dose if it is almost time for your next dose.

You will know if you have overdosed on Lexapro if you experience palpitations, nausea, tremor, sweating, vomiting, dizziness or drowsiness. Seek help even if you do not experience the mentioned symptoms but suspect overdose anyway.
