Hi Jamera,
My understand is that Lexapro affects people in different ways. I was instructed by my MD to take it in the evening between dinner and going to bed. It took a week or two to adjust but I've been on Lexapro for 4 months now and haven't noticed any increased problem with sleeping. I would ask your MD if you should try taking Lexapro at a different time of day.
Good luck.
