Can you recommed anything that would treat mood swings instead of lexapro?
Expert:  salar176 replied 8 years ago.
there are a number of medicines like Cymbalta, Prozac, zoloft, Lithium which can be used for mood swings. I would rec. that you talk to your doctor about them and he can determine which will work best for you.Also therapy with a psychiatrist might help.
