Escitalopram Oxalate

white, round, 20mg tablets. Depression?? ## just was given cipralex to try for depression and anxiety - been on zoloft, effexor then prestiq - just wondered if anyone has had any good results ## I have been taking Lexam for approx 4 mths and found it to be far better than Zoloft or the mulitude of others I've been put on in the past. As I'm single I can't comment on any issues with Libido, something that it definitely affected by Zoloft, but I can say that it definitely makes it easier to get up each day. I sleep less (unlike when on Endep) and have more energy than before. I've had no issues with weight gain for once. If anything I've lost a little because I'm not gorging myself with comfort foods. I hope it works as well for you. ## Escitalopram is used to trea...

Can an overdose of Nexito 20 kill a person?

I want to know if a person can die of nexito 20 overdose. If yes, how long does it take for the effects to show? ## If a person take overdose of 8 tablets of ratilam and nexito10 ## It is always possible to overdose on any medication, though how long symptoms take to appear can vary from person to person. The NIH lists the ones for Nexito (Escitalopram, and Clonazepam) as possibly including shallow breathing, vomiting, unconsciousness, and a drop in blood pressure/heart rate. I am sorry, Aman, but I couldn't find anything listed under the name of Ratilam. Do you know anything else about it?
