Um... they don't make liquid Lexapro anymore??

Just got back from the pharmacy, and they told me they don't make liquid Lexapro anymore?? Um, wtf? Are you serious? So they force these meds down our throat and then they don't even make the liquid version so you can't get off?

Well, they said they'd call the doctor tomorrow to figure out what to do.

So, if I ultimately don't get ahold of the liquid. What the hell am I suppose to do when I start tapering?

Did they give a reason why it's not available?

You could have it compounded. If that's not an option there is something else that I think would probably work but first things first.

Re: Um... they don't make liquid Lexapro anymore??

When I went to the docs for liquid Lexapro she said they only did a version that was twice as strong as the tablets, so I decided to stick with the tablets. Instead I crush them into the equivalent amount of juice, and then using a syringe remove a portion of the liquid to reduce my dose. I got a tablet crusher to make it easier.

I'm not sure if it's a different situation in the UK though alto. Next time I see my doc I'm gonna ask again. I'm seeing a new doc now who seems more helpful than the last.

You can't get liquid anything here in NZ, but I recently was able to get a compounding pharmacy to make up a liquid from my loxamine tablets.

Re: Um... they don't make liquid Lexapro anymore??

If you are in the UK, then liquid escitalopram (cipralex/lexapro) is available as oral drops, 10mg/ml concentration... apparantly it can be mixed with water, apple juice or orange juice before taking, which is useful info because it is a more potent liquid formulation than other liquid SSRIs.

Tablets are available in 5mg, 10mg and 20mg strengths.
