      You could try taking the lexapro at different times of day, like at night if you take it in the morning, and vice versa. Sometimes, you gotta experiment with your routine. Melatonin is a good thing to take when your insomnia is extra bad. If you take it too often, your body will get used to it, and it will stop being effective, so use it when you think you really need it.

      Yes, lexapro gave me insomnia, so my doctor said to take it only in the morning and then take a sleeping pill called amitriptyline 25mg before bed. This helped for a better nights sleep

      Not on Lexapro but I've had some luck with a magnesium supplement. 💕 Hope this helps. 🙌

One person mentioned that they were taking 20mg of Lexapro and it didn't seem to be helping with their insomnia. Another person suggested trying Melatonin and Trazodone for sleep issues. However, it's important to consult with a doctor or psychiatrist as insomnia is a treatable problem and medication can help.
