Hi, sorry if there is an answer to this already but I can't be bothered scrolling through the posts!
My GP has prescribed me citalopram today and I didn't think to ask her if it was ok to take it at night. I was recently on sertraline but came off it for various reasons after 6 weeks (with no improvements I should add). One of my problems with it was insomnia. For the first few weeks I didn't even bother trying to sleep before 3am. But also the whole six weeks I pretty much just lay under blankets on my sofa and slept.
I'm a little worried about the citalopram having the same affect (as I have two kids to look after, and can't just neglect everything). Also she is starting me on very low dose as when I was on Citalopram for a short time 6 years ago it gave me racing thoughts and panic attacks (which I had never experienced previously). This usually happened at night.
Has anyone found taking it at night instead might help allieviate such problems?
