    Still yawn after 20mg four months. Shaking gone. Still sleep in 3 hrblocks. Easy to deal with since CIT probably saved my life. Oh forgot sore neck

      Hi Terry, well the neck thing is definitely dreadful, it really gets very frustrating, I know other people have so many more side effects, mine is basically my neck. It has been sooo bad from the very beginning and I went off Cita almost 5 weeks ago and it's still horrendous. Just when I think it may start letting up, Bam it feels like i can barely hold my head up! And I work,where I wear a hard hat,so my neck muscles can't be that weak, but it sure hurts a lot! I'm gunna try acupuncture this week, I pray it helps!! Good luck with your issues. I do put heating rubs on my neck and that does help a bit for awhile. Will let u know if the acupuncture helps!!

    Hello, u will c everybody is different, I yawned quite a bit, like 1 day, falling asleep took about an hour, but once asleep stayed sleeping. Sometimes at first was very tired for really no reason, the worst is the sore neck! Aside from everything except the neck it was really not bad at all. So maybe you will be one of the lucky ones to not have really bad side effects😀 And this forum is a real life saver, no matter what u go thru it seems there is someone who u can relate to you and you are not alone!! Good Luck💐

      Good Morning, when I was sooo tired, I would make myself get moving for a bit. I have a job where I can take a walk around here and there. And that really helped. If you can, give that a try! I was so tired sometimes I fought to keep my eyes open talking to someone. But it only happened here and there, not all the time. So hopefully that's how it will be for you! And u may only have minor side effects which will b awesome for you!! Keep Living😀

    Hi nic

    I have been on 30 cit for 12 months. I feel normal again nothing at All.I could complain about except yawning and the lack of sex drive. Rather that than the awful feeling and thought we all go through.
