    Hi,  In most case taking cialopram makes you feel drousy especially when you first starting to take them, this is why I think it is best to take them about an hour before you go to bed as it helps you go to sleep, but the most important is thing the fact that these make you drousy it is not advisable to take them before attempting to drive or performing amy function that requires your full concentration. I hope this helps and that the citalopram gives the results that you are after

    Hi Chloelouise,

    I take mine everyday before I leave for work, they do make people yawn alot and feel fatiqued as the sertonin is increasing, some people complain of insomnia however once the normalisation of the meds happens you sleep generally good I hear no real feedback about insomnia just the intial disrupted sleep. tTere can also be a paradoxal type feeling in some cases 'anxiety,depression etc in early stages.You'll be fine either time of day wont matter The biggest issue is people wanting instant results I'm afriad they take a few weeks to month before they show improvement in mood and other in most acase. If you find after a prolonged period you want to stop and believe they have worked make sure you wean off the medication by slowing reducing DO NOTSUDDENLY STOP you will suffer terriable withdrawals. all the best wink
