Cipralex also known as Escitalopram is usually used for the treatment of depression.Cipralex can be used in children under 18 years but only with great caution and close monitoring by the doctor. One of the unwanted side effects is self-harm.Anxiety is also a known side effect.I am concerned about your son's behaviour on this medicine and recommend that he be seen again by the doctor who prescibed the Cipralex.
