This is my 4th day on Citalopram and I am so tired I can hardly function. Is this normal. My Dr started me out at 5mgs since I am sensitive to medicine.

    Hi, I take 10mg a day I was in them for 18 months and decided to stop a few weeks ago. Felt terrible without them so started up again 2 weeks ago.
