    How does Coxito S work?

    Dr. Haleema Yezdani MBBS , General Physician

    Coxito S contains escitalopram which belongs to the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) that works by inhibiting the reuptake (reabsorption) of a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) serotonin which is presumed to be associated with the feeling of well-being and happiness. Low levels of serotonin in our brain cause low mood and depression. Inhibition of reuptake of serotonin by Coxito S results in its increased concentration in our brain which helps in elevating the mood.
