I am on Remeron and Lexapro (escitalopram) for G A D.What is the best time to take Lexapro (escitalopram) because if I take both at night,I have a nagging headache the next day.

In brief: Remeron (mirtazapine) at night

Definitely take the Remeron at night - as it is sedating.
You can play with when you take the Lexapro (escitalopram) dose - as it has a fairly long half-life, I usually suggest in the morning with breakfast for most people. Hope that helps!
