Taking Celexa at night instead of the morning?
Posted 07 August 2006 - 05:48 AM
I take my 10mg at about 7am when I get up and I am off my face until about 3pm. I have loads of driving to do tomorrow and the next day, I am thinking of missing tomorrows morning pill and having it in the evening instead, it makes me really sleepy so hopefully it will just knock me out at night and I will be ok in the morning.
does this make sense? I know this will all pass but I need to be safe driving witha child in the car especially.
Also I'm thinking about coming off them, I have had a bit of a holiday from my head which is what I wanted, and what I agreed with the Dr.

I don't think there's any problem with swithing to an evening med time. However, You might want to move to that over a couple of days. For example, Take it at noon, then the next day at bedtime.
If I remember correctly, you've only been taking the meds for about 2 weeks? Please try to give them a chance to work! The sleepiness that you are feeling is most likely a strt-up side effect, meaning it will pass. Have you spoken to your doc about your side effects? Perhaps he has some ideas?

How do you feel today?
Any change is scary even when we want it

it made me sleepy so it really helped with my sleep
I was then fine to drive the next morning - I used to get up quite bouncy :)
but when I took it in the morning I was sleepy all day and really did need an afternoon nap

Relapse back into depression tends to happen less often if you stay on the medication for a while. It's worth considering, IMHO.
