hello, I'm currently on citalopram (about 3 months now) and having a real dilemma with side effects. The tablets have never quite agreed with me and I now take them in the evenings as the dizziness and tiredness was too much during the day. I take them about 7pm and am now finding that around 10am the following morning I have an odd off balance/ feeling weird feeling for a while
. I tried taking the citalopram at 8pm last night and weirdly enough had the same sensation at 11am so I'm sure it's the citalopram. Then around 3pm every day I become really groggy/spaced out and suddenly feel so tired until around 7pm when I suddenly start to feel normal again. I'm wondering whether all this is due to the tablet starting to wear of? But it says it's 36 hours half life so I thought it would still be working? I'm begin going to consider coming off them and trying something else but not sure what else is good for anxiety? I'm really struggling with the side effects and have tried to up the dose a bit but my anxiety went sky high. Advice please anyone would be appreciated thanks
