I forgot to take my lexapro today. I started feeling really depressed and realized i forgot to take it. I took it about 10 minutes ago. I take 10mg per day in the morning. Will it help with feelings of depression or does it matter? What happens if you take it late one day? Thank you!

Lexapro actually builds up in your system and doesn't necessarily have to be taken at the exact same time every day, as long as it's taken every day. For me, it took two weeks for the effects to be noticeable. I hope you start feeling better soon - if not, try cuteoverload.com, which is a website that tends to cheer me up when I'm down.
