Depends really on how the patient reponds to the Lexapro which is usually taken in the morning unless it makes the patient very sleepy.

I'm not a medical professional, but in my personal experience Lexapro made me unable to sleep when I took it in the afternoon/night. I would agree with the above poster to try it in the morning.

With me Lexapro makes me very lethargic a few hours later so I have changed from taking it in the mornings which made me tired in the afternoon to now taking it with dinner. That is what works for me.
