Different people react to different anti-depressants in different ways. It is difficult to predict exactly how a well a particular anti-depressant will work for you. But on the whole, most women with anxiety and depression have done well on Lexapro. I suggest that you try out this drug first and see how well you do on it.

I hope this helps.
