Late dose??

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi guys!

Been a while since I have been on, I hope you are all well! Been on citalopram 20mg for over a year now and my moods have greatly improved some anxiety at times but I guess that's normal! Anyhow I have a busy work life in that I work shifts days or nights I take my meds in the eve before bed so when I am on nights I take it at my tea break but last night I was very busy and didn't get a break and totally forgot to take my citalopram and propranolol until I was finished at 8am!

Question is do I just start taking them in the morning or what will I do about tonight's dose???

Hope this is ok! I used to take my mess in the morning but this happened before and I changed to nights x

    I'd just miss that dose and take the next one when its due.  I've done that before, and usually I start feeling a bit heady.  If you do start feeli a bit unwell, take the next dose slightly earlier than usual, and then tomorrow get back onto the regular time.

      I think as Marf suggests.  Carry on with mornings, then lunchtime and back to evening.  I take mine in the mornings, and some people take it at night.  Doesn't matter when really as long as it's the same each day.

    Prob a bit late now but ditto Kate! I think it depends when you'd rather take it, you could either carry on with mornings or do it lunchtime tomorrow then back to evenings again the following day xxx
