The Escitalopram in the Lexapro is more potent than the Citalopram, so it is normal that a higher dose of the Citalopram be needed, if someone is switching from one to the other.



And drowsiness can be a normal side effect of both of them, as well as nausea, dry mouth and weight changes.

Are there any other questions or comments?
