Lexapro (escitalopram) is the S-enantomer of Celexa (citalopram), which is a mixture of the R- & S-enantomers. The S-enantomer has better SSRI activity.

From my experience, Lexapro is generally not as effective as Effexor (venlafaxine), an SSRI/SNRI antidepressant, in the treatment of major depressive disorder, in most people.
