This is my third time on citalopram in the last 15 years but not taken it until now for 7 years. In the past ive taken it for anxiety and its done the trick. This time im taking it for depression. I took 10mg for a week so have been on 20mg for 2 weeks. Side effects are wearing off but im just so tired. I switched to taking it at 6pm a week ago and I don't know if its helped as I wake up at night now. I have small children so cant catch up on sleep. I go to bed as early as I can but im just so tired. I can't remember if I was always tired last time I was on it. I could catch up on sleep more easily I guess so it didn't matter. Now though when catching up is not an option I wonder if its better to be depressed than exhausted. I have no energy or motivation to clean my house where as before I may have been miserable but least my house was clean! I am feeling more positive the last few days its just the tiredness....
