Both Zoloft and Lexapro are SSRI's, so it shouldn't be too complicated to switch from one to the other.

I would suggest trying what the doctor said to do, what you've written here does make . Lexapro is a lot more potent than Zoloft, so don't worry about the dose differences. If you do start to feel bad side effects, go back to where you were, and contact your doctor.Health Question & Answer

I take generic Wellbutrin SR (150 mg) in the morning, and Lexapro (10 mg) with dinner, for depression and anxiety. I've been taking that for over two years, and it's working very well for me.Health Question & Answer
