Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Reduced levels of serotonin (the chemical messengers that nerves use to communicate with one another) are common in disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and anxiety. Escitalopram shows antidepressant, anti-obsessive-compulsive and anti-bulimic (binge eating disorders) actions by maintaining the levels of serotonin in the brain.
