hi. ok--i think i found it. stalopam or escitalopram is a SSRI antidepressant that is more commonly known as lexapro. it is contraindicated in patients who have taken MAOI medications in the last 14 days. there is a form that is combined with clonazepam (which is a relatively mild benzodiazepine) called stapolam plus marketed in india and possibly in the uk. i'm going to send you a couple of weblinks i found that may be helpful. did your doctor give you any diagnoses aside from depressive or anxiety conditions? and have you informed him/her of what may be side effects that you are having? i'm sending this stuff now----keep in touch---i'm not usually online until after 9pm EST but i'll try to keep checking around.  take care,  gm
