    Lexapro

    I am about to start Lexapro for health anxiety.

    My main concern is insomnia. I figure I will start off very slow, with just 2.5 mg for a few days then increase, but I'm not sure whether I should take it in the morning or at night so that it doesn't interfere too much with my sleep.

    Any suggestions?

    Ive been on lexapro 10mg for 5 months now, and i take mine with dinner, it doesnt interfear with my sleeping patterns, but its diff for everybody.

    Starting off with such a low dosage you should have very minimal effects anyways.

    Hi,

    I was on 10mg for 2 1/2 years and always took it in the morning. For me it was the wonder pill and I never felt better. Also when I weaned off it, no problems at all.

    Good luck with it and hopefully you will feel a lot better soon.

    Take care
