    Yes it's normal to feel tired. Every time you increase the dose the dude effects start again unfortunately. Are you sticking at 10mg? You should feel better after a couple of months.

    No I don't get tired. Even when I'm on 30mgs you might need to go back to doctors if it continues as you could be on the wrong meds.

    Everyone gets diff side effects.  Fatigue is normal.  Usually you'll just have a couple weeks of side effects after a dosage increase, or less, and not as intense as when you started.  It does work for a lot of people who stick with it.  Also another great thread is "Anyone NOT had any side effects on Citalopram?"  Hundreds of people on it explain about your question and other side effects.  Especially at the beginning of the thread.  Good luck :-)
