I'm sure you're already aware, but the most common side effects reported with Lexapro are nausea, insomnia, problems with ejaculation, prolonged drowsiness or sleepiness, increased sweating, fatigue and decreased sexual tendencies. Other important information that you may want to look at can be found http://www.lexapro.com/about_lexapro...x?prevNav=nav1

You're probably taking it before bed to ease the sleepy factor that you'll get from takin the meds and so you won't be tired throughout the day if you take them in the morning.

Anti-depressants are very powerful drugs and long term side effects are not fully understood at this point in time, so I also want to advise you to only take the perscribed number of pills per day. Don't take any more or any less. Good luck with the meds
