Hello, I've been struggling with aniexty for the last month. I was RX'd Citalopram 20 mg a week ago but put of taking it for the first time until last night. The drowsiness has been dreadful. I could not function at work so I came home and slept for 4 hours straight. Now, finally - 14 hours after the inital dose, I'm able to sit up and do some work, without feeling like Im going to fall asleep sitting here. It was so bad the few minutes I was at work that I had to put my head on my desk and fight to stay awake.
I've contacted my doctor about reducing to 10 mg. She is out of the office today but I'm looking for any advice from others who have expreienced the drowiness. I know I can't continue like this because I can't function.
As a side note, I do feel less aniexty today, not sure if that is because fo the drowziness or the drug, but I feel like i can concentrate more and i'm not obsessing over the situation I have been for months.
