    Default Sertraline to Escitralopram switch

    I'm currently on 75mg of Sertraline and wanting to switch over to Escitalopram, but I haven't been able to come up with any clear numbers on how to do the switch exactly. I would think I'd need at least 10mg Escitalopram, maybe 15mg.

    Has anyone done this switch before and have any points on what worked for them?

    Meant for this to go in neuroscience/noots.

    I switched from 25mg sertraline to 10mg escitalopram. I remember my doc telling me that 10mg escitalopram was equal to something like 75mg sertraline and that I would likely experience side effects similar to SSRI start up. I think 10mg-15mg escitalopram will be fine.

    10mg of escitalopram will be closer to a 150mg to 200mg dose of sertraline. Cheers!
