Hi everyone-I'm new. I started on Lexapro last night-the doctor said it would make me sleepy, so I should take it at night.
Guess what? I was up all night, and now I'm shaky and my head feels foggy. I need to change the time of day that I take it, but since I took it last night at 8pm, I'm afraid to take another so close to that time (It's 9:30 am) Is it safe to take now, or should I wait until noon? My husband is working close by right now, but has to work in the city tonight, so I'd like to take it while he's close if I need him.
(I have an 11 month old, so I have to think about being able to take care of him-my older kids are at school until 3:30)
I was on Lexapro several years ago, and it worked well, but for the life of me, I cannot remember when I took it! At the time I had been taken off of Effexor to go on Lexapro-Effexor made my skin crawl.
I need to lie down, but I'd like to know what anyone elses experience's are with changing the time of day with Lexapro.
Thank you so much-I'm so grateful I found a place that I can ask these questions
