As I have posted in earlier discussions am still not feeling great on the citalopram, I have now been on it for 4 weeks and although I have fleeting moments of feeling less anxy am not totally there yet. Is it really true that it can take 8 weeks to feel the benifits? I went back to my Dr and he said its still early days and wouldn't up my dose. He did however prescribe diazepan which sort of helps but as soon as I try to address some of my worries it seems to take me back to square 1. My problems seem a unclimbable mountain and feel not in a good place to even try.
Another question too. Does it make a difference if you take the citalopram in the morning or night time as imy worst time is usually first thing in the morning. As sleep is still a problem I am finding life quite challenging at the moment and cant really see a way out. I usually get off to sleep ok but by 2 or 3 in the morning am wide awake!! As am on 20 mg a day would it be better to spilt the dose so I have 10mg in the a.m and 10mg at night! Any help would be VERY greatfully recieved!! x
