ive been on cit 20mg for 3 1/2 weeks , taking it at around 6pm , every day I wake after some disturbed sleep with a hangover from hell that lingers for most of the day , just can't shake it ! It is like the worst hangover I've ever had every day !

    Hi,

    My GP and therapist told me not to take cit in the evening as it disturbs sleep. I take it in the morning. The sleepiness, yawning, headaches etc eased off after 4 weeks.

    Maybe try taking it in the morning and see what happens?

    Good luck

    Hi Gary I take mine at 10 pm and I go out like a light. I do have a few drinks every night. Not bothered me at all. Been on CIT 30 for 12 months has taken this time for all reaction's to go .I men the yawning. Grinding teath and upset tummy.but try and focus on wat is happing now in your life .the past has gone and the future has not been written. So its now and not what could be and you can only change your own interpretation of life not others .its not in your control so don't try to. You will get no where. Good look
