New Depression Drug

A new drug called Lexapro just hit the market for the treatment of depression, anxiety, panic, and social anxiety disorders. Drug maker Forest Laboratories says that it's similar to the anti-depressant Celexa, but that this new drug, Lexapro, works faster and with fewer side effects.

So, if you've had trouble with other anti-depressants, you might ask your doctor about Lexapro. Market analysts predict it will be a big player in the $12 billion anti-depressant market.
