I have been taking 10 mg of lexapro for 3.5 weeks now. Started 15mg today.
The weird thing about Lexapro is it seems to make some people sleepy, while it doesn't others. It doesn't affect me either way so I chose to take mine at night so I won't forget and will take it at the same time everyday. Mornings are always different for me. Some days I'm up early and others i sleep in so its not consistent. It's best to take it at around the same time everyday. I think it helps with my sleep in that Im not as depressed and therefor sleep better. Except for right now because I'm dealing with something kinda heavy... but normally, I feel that it helps my sleep not because it makes me sleepy, but because it helps with depression and I sleep better because of that. I wish you the best!!
