    If your dose is once a day, I would always take it at night right before you go to bed. That way you wake up, your medicine has had time to kick in, and you're ready to go.

    for me, lexapro made it near impossible to sleep. my dr initially recommended i take it at night before bed, but i would be wide awake, even if i was super tired. i ended up switching to mornings and it made me feel much better . the only thing is, for me, once i take it, i have to wait a couple hours before i’ll be able to sleep. so don’t plan on taking it then going right back to sleep
