The FDA has put out a notice stating that patients 60 years and older should not take more than 20 mg of Celexa and 10 mg Lexapro. It also says for those under 60 they should not take more than 40 mg of Celexa and 20 mg of Lexapro. If they are doing this they need to be monitored by an EKG. It says at higher doses these medications make you more at risk for an irregular heart rhythm.

Does anyone know of safer medications than these two for those that need higher doses?
