What Is The Difference Between Lexapo And Paxil? Does Lexapro Work Better Or Is It Stroner

Is there a difference between these meds? If so, which one is stronger?


Thank you for your question and welcome to AnxietyConnection.com.

I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.

However, I can tell you that both Lexapro and Paxil are SSRI antidepressants. However, because everyone reacts differently to medications, it is impossible to say which medication would work best for you. While some people may find Lexapro to better help their depression or anxiety, other people may find Paxil is more helpful. Sometimes, it is a matter of trial and error to find the medication and dosage that is right for you.
