Has anyone else experienced nightmares taking citalopram before bed?

      I took it for years. Feeling extra anxious, jittery, or just straight up weird is COMPLETELY normal while adjust to the medication. Some people adjust in a week others (like me) it took 3 weeks. Hang in there. It’s frustrating that they don’t publish that kind of stuff. I had to hunt and dig and finally pull it out of my doctor that, that can happen early on. I take Prozac now for let 2 years. Did wonders for me.

        @HCG2021 thanks! I was on citalopram for about 6 or so years and then switched to Sertraline at the end of last year, but it’s not doing anything for me, so now I’m going back to the citalopram. Starting at a low dose of 10mg for 2 weeks while still taking the 50 mg of Sertraline. 🙄

      Did you just start taking it? (Like with in the last 3-4 weeks?)

        @HCG2021 yes. This is my first week back on it. I have taken it before, over a year ago, but always took it during the day, but now my psychiatrist recommended taking it at night
