I started escitalopram (generic for lexapro) 11/14. I now take 20mg as soon as I wake up everyday. When I start taking it my psychiatrist said the most common response is some fatigue, thus I took it before going to sleep. We found out that it gave me slight insomnia, so we changed it to as soon as I get up. The point is that everyone's different--some people get insomnia, others get sleepy. I would start off taking it before you go to sleep. Good Luck! I hope Lexapro helps you; it's been beneficial for me.

If I started taking lexapro in the morning and want to change to evening is it safe if I took 1-10m?
