Lexapro Question - Dosage

I've been on 10mg Lexapro for over a year...hadn't had any anxiety since I have been on it, until now.  Now is because I'm 7 days off of lortab after being on it for 15 months.  I'm working with my doctor and wants to move me to 20mg of Lexapro.  Anyone made this change?  Any side effects?  Did it work better for you?

I just called the pharmacist.  He said if you get drowsy from it, take it at night.  If you get jittery from it, take it in the morning.

He said there might be a recurrance of side effects for about 1-2 days as I move up the dosage, but they should be minor and would probably be the same type as I had when I started the lexapro.

What do you guys think?
