Oversleeping

Posted , 3 users are following.

Since upping to 30mg just under 2 weeks ago have never slept so much. Was fine at the weekend and not gone into work today as had repeated nightmares and now slept all day. Is the normal and will it ease? Not sure if body relaxing.

    hi becky it's such a rollercoaster isn't it - it's hard to give any definite answers (i've noticed even the doctors often just give a best guess!)

    perhaps if you can give it a couple more weeks, maybe you will adjust and be ok,  or if not, it could mean that you are taking too much which is overstimulating you - perhaps you are unsuited to this med once you go above a certain dose  (for example, with myself i found that with the med sertraline, if i went to 100mg it affected my sleep too much, but at doses below 100mg it didnt work effectively for me, so i had to give up on sertraline (i gave it a good 6 months though, which wasn't easy but anyway..)

    so now im on 20mg citalopram, few weeks in, hoping it works (im at the horrendous anxiety in the morning stage!)  rolleyes
