Hi. My partner has been on citalopram for a number of years. She takes 15mg a day. It has really helped her mood swings but she gets quite drowsy and can't get out of bed in the mornings. During the week she stays in bed and gets up at the last minute for work. At the weekend she often stays in bed until midday, sometimes all day, and sometimes goes back to bed in the afternoon. I'm worried but she says its the side effects of the citalopram. I've suggested she discuss with her Doctor but she won't. She says it's normal for people on this medication. I guess my question is, is this a normal side effect? It seems drowsiness is common, but she sleeps alot.
