Hi Teddy

the big question is

is the lexapro working for you? sometimes it doesnt

do you notice a big reduction in your anxiety, if not maybe ask about upping the dose which, I think is between 10 and 20

if working and causing tiredness, then take just before bed

these antidepressants will make 1 person tired, another more active and hgave no effect on a third, in other words the side effects are unpredictable

recovered former longtime anxiety and panic attack sufferer and helper of other sufferers  but no training or  qualifications in medicine or psychology, any remarks that may be taken as advice must be confirmed with doctor or other health professional
