Forgot to take a dose of Citalopram

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all! I usually take my cit at night (around 21:30) because it helps me sleep. I forgot to take my dose last night and just remembered. Should I take it now to make up for the missed dose or should I wait and take it tonight at my usual time? I'm on 20mg and I just don't want to take it too late and risk having withdrawals(if that's even possible after missing one dose). All advice is appreciated! Thank you!

    Id just take it in AM. CITA takes weeks to reach an proper level. Being off by 12 hours is irrelevant

    Morning tcaro,

    Missing just one dose may lead to slight withdrawl. Many have missed a dose before now and many find it best to take it asap, I certainly do! This way you will avoid any nasty withdrawl, type side effects.

    Leaving it until the next dose is not a good idea! As is missing any dose!
