Side effects of Citalopram after switching from zoloft

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have recently switched from taking Zoloft for the past several years to 10mg Citalopram two weeks ago. I have been having two main side effects- headaches, which are starting to get better, and drowsiness/fatigue that sets in about an hour after taking it. I feel so tired it’s hard to do my regular daily activities. Will this get better or is this particular side effect one that tends to stay no matter how long you’ve been on it? I have tried switching it to taking it at night- but even though I feel very tired I wake up frequently at night and then am exhausted the next day. I switched from Zoloft because I didn’t feel that it was doing a great job anymore, but this tiredness is making me feel worse so I may just switch back. Thank you in advance for your help and feedback smile
