Escitalopram is used to treat generalized anxiety disorder or depression. It is an oral drug which is chemically similar to Celexa or Citalopram. It belongs to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) class. Sertraline (Zoloft), paroxetine (Paxil) and, Fluoxetine (Prozac) etc are also included in this class.
