Changing from Citalopram to Escitalopram : When to take the meds

I've been on 20mg of Citalopram for the last 3 weeks with plenty of side effects (night sweats. waking up early, morning shakes) but very little improvement of my moods. Went to GP this morning and she moved me onto Escitalopram 10mg which I used to take 5 years ago and which then worked ok. She's said I can start straight away and suggested that as opposed to taking it last thing at night I take it in the morning. I always thought that taking meds at night meant you didn't suffer from the side effects as badly. When do people take their meds and how does it work for them?
