Best time to take Cit?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I just recently started taking 20mg Cit (I took my 2nd dose last night) and I find that I have anxiety upon waking. Would it be better for me to take it in the morning rather than at night?

    That's the same thing I've been wanting to know, I guess we kind of have to play around with it to see which time works best. I've been on 10 mg going on 6 weeks now but started on 5 mg for 5 weeks, so totally been on the cit for going on 10 weeks now. But also remember you'll have side effects for awhile and in time they'll get better, been told to try and stock it out though that it's a good medicine once were' use to it. Good luck! People on here know more than I do, keep alongs questions, they'll answer you, you'll feel not so alone coming to this website. Cindt

    The anxiety is unfortunately a side effect as you start them.

    I always used to take them in the morning, mainly so I didn't forget to take them, but I also found they made it more difficult to get to sleep.

    From what I have read it suits some people better to take in the evening, some in the morning.

    It is best to keep it consistent time of day though, and bear in mind if you take one night then switch to morning there might only be a gap of 8 hours instead of 24 hours between doses which is not ideal. It would be best to take a few hours earlier each day for a few days, so the gap is closer to 24 hours.

      Ok great! I can't believe the side effects can kick in so soon but I am going to stick it out since everyone seems to go through the same thing. I'll be glad when they subside!

      tcaro, hoping you are not hit by too many side effects, but the great thing is having support on the days you may feel a little wobbly. I am happy you are determined and here's to a good start. We are all in the same boat. Good going! Lee.
