Online treatment for Depression or Anxiety at Lemonaid Health
Do you have symptoms of depression or anxiety that despite everything you do and trying to work through it for months, you don’t feel better? Our doctors can help. We added two new services in the summer of 2019, Depression and Anxiety, to the increasing list at Lemonaid Health! Regardless of if it is your first time being evaluated by a clinician, you are needing to restart or refill for your existing medicine, we can help if safe and appropriate.
The service is a monthly subscription model of $95 per month which includes medicines mailed to you, monthly video or phone call with a clinician until you are stable, and ability to message a clinician anytime.
Prescription medicine can be delivered directly to your home in 2 to 3 business days.
The service is available to anyone who lives in any of the 50 states or Washington, DC.
Medications include typical SSRIs like Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa and Lexapro.
We prescribe the typical medicines for depression and anxiety which include SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and SNRI (serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors). These include:
- SSRI – Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), Celexa (citalopram), Lexapro (escitalopram), Paxil (paroxetine)
- SNRI – Effexor (venlafaxine), Cymbalta (desvenlafaxine)
Treatment can take at least 6 to 8 weeks of taking a pill every day before seeing full effect. This is why we monitor patients monthly until stable. Once improved, treatment is typically for 1 year before discussion or consideration of tapering of the medicine.
