    I take mine all different times of the day, depends when I remember. The effects you are getting are just side effects on starting out taking these and should disappear soon.

    Good luck

    Hi Carol

    it takes weeks for your body and mind to adjust to the citalopram, and you are very early doors so stick in and stay strong it will most definitely be worth it , its perfectly normal for you to feel like this just now but I doubt its the change in times of you taking the CIT,

    Please join us on the forum Anyone NOT had any side effects on Citalopram? as so many folk there to support you that have been thru the same thing, have a wee read and see if you think it will help you, its a tough journey but better than suffering continuously.

    Take care

    Hi Carol,

    I have been on citalopram for three years. At first they were subscribed ( 30mg) for emotional depression but once I felt better in myself ; about a year, they continued the subscription to help me sleep at night.

    Before taking citalopram I was on sleeping tablets for 20 years!

    Yesterday I went to my doctor for wright advice; my weight has rocketed in the last three years and I thought it was the citalopram.

    But I was assured it was not the citalopram. However, I am only now taking 10mg at night.

    The answer to your question is no, I feel the best timeto take Citalopram is at night.

    I have only been on them for a year or so. Started at 10 now on 40. It's my first anti-depressant, so didn't know what to expect. I can't say I have had any reaction from them. For the first 2-3 months I didn't think they were making any difference, but I stuck with them. I can't say I had a "Eurika" moment or anything, but a couple of situations I have found myself in lately don't seem to have caused the usual anxiety attacks that they used to. I seem a lot calmer in myself of late. Yes I do take them at night. Feel free to PM if you wish.
