forgot medication lexapro

Many thanks

Hello Lucy,

Although one can easily buy some medicines without prescription in Argentina, that would not be the case of yours.

Escitalopram is classed here as a Type IV psychotropic and cannot be sold without *two* prescriptions from a local doctor: one for the pharmacy / drugstore, and another one to be kept for further filing and control of the Health Authorities.

In case you do see a doctor to get a prescription, you should tell him that you are on Escitalopram, because it's not sold under the name Lexapro here. The commercial names are Belapen, Lextor, Novo Humorap and Aramix, among others.
