Hello and thank you for your question. Lunbeck's Lexapro/Cipralex is the brand name Lexapro and not the generic version. Lunbeck Pharamaceuticals was the first company to manufacture Lexapro (in conjunction with Forest Labs) and retains its brand name, so it is not a generic. Secondly I want to point out that the maximum dose of Lexapro is 20mg/day, so when you said that she was taking 40mg/day of the Lexapro, that is a significant overdose that will cause more internal harm than good. So please make sure that her dose is correct with her doctor as Lexapro (Escitalopram) has a maximum dose of 20mg/day as you can see here in this link:
I hope this answers your questions and gives you some guidance on this issue. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns as I am happy to assist and support you regarding this issue.
