urine screen for escitalopram (Lexapro)
Post a Reply
Had my last 20mg dose of escitalopram (generic for Lexapro) 6 days ago, which I was taking to help mediate menopause symptoms including hot flashes (it worked, too!) I have a pre-employment 5 panel urine drug screen test this afternoon. Will the escitalopram test positive for any drugs? Or will it have sufficiently flushed through my system any way (based on its half life of 27 - 32 hours)? Do I need to disclose it (I'd prefer not to if possible)?

I was prescribed Lexamil 5mg and I took 1 on the 11.11.2010 before reading the prescription note. I am feeling so overweight, and my bowel movement is totally altered. How long does the effects last? Alternatively how do I reverse this? ## Lexamil contains the active ingredient Escitalopram, it is an antidepressant.

found white round pill scored on one side 20on the other
2 Replies RSS
I googled this pill but got more then one answer of what this is. ## Hi Jade, It took some major digging to find a match on this one, but my research indicates that a round white film-coated tablet with 20 on one side and a score line on the other is reportedly identified as Escitalopram oxalate (20mg). This medication is an antidepressant. So far I've only seen a single image of this pill throughout the entire internet, which leads me to believe that it is probably no longer being made in this specific form with these imprints. The vast majority of Escitalopram images signify that as well. Unfortunately there aren't any other details I could go off of in terms of verifying the exact manufacturer, but hopefully this can at least help serve as strong prospect until further notice...

Will Lexapro show up as Benzo on Urine Screen?
9 Replies RSS
I jut started getting frequent UA's, and keep coming up for BENZO's ... I was on Librium for withdrawl off Xanax about 20 days ago, and Im on 20 mg Lexapro daily. Can the Lexapro be coming up as a BENZO?? One doctor of mine says YES other Dr says NO... HELP!!!!! ## The Xanax itself can continue to show up on a urine test for 6 weeks, after you have stopped taking it, though the exact time can vary slightly, depending on how long you were taking it and how much you were taking. And the Librium can also cause a positive test for Benzodiazepines. But no, the Laxapro is not known to cause false positives, but the fact that you were taking the Xanax and then used Librium may explain the problem. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I was add 6 milligrams of xanax a day for 3...

I have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, and given Abilify A few weeks ago I became depressed and the doctors want to add Lexapro. I was given the generic. Will these two medications interact with each other. So far I have not started the Lexapro 5mg and I only take 7mg of Abilify per day. I have a family history of diabetes. I am not a diabetic, but my father has diabetes. I read Lexapro can cause diabetes in some patients.
