Advice & Tips: I was on Lexapro prior to Citalopram, but switched because Lexapro was not covered by my insurance. They are similar drugs, only Lexapro is all one form while Citalopram is a mixed form (at least as I understand it). Lexapro worked much, much better for me than I feel that Citalopram works. However, I also don't have the same annoying side effects that I did with Lexapro.
Cost: < $25 monthly
