I took it between 2008 and 2010 and it worked.then I got pregnant and now I m re starting,I knew from the past that if I took it at night, it would keep me awake so taking it in the am used to work for me.

now this week that I started, I take it at 6 Am and by 4 am I am wide awake.

Is anyone taking it?

what is your experience with it

 i took it for a couple of years and just stopped it. it wasnt working for me any longer. i took it at 8 am. it didnt seem to bother with my sleep or anything but i take risperdal at night which puts me right to sleep. try taking it a little later in the day.

I take it and it's been a wonder drug for me.  I hope it continues to work for me.  I also take Zolpidem and that takes care of any sleep issues I might have.

 Has anyone noticed any weight gain while taking Citalopram?  I have been taking it for about 1 1/2 years and have gained about 40 lbs......and this is part of my depression.....I know when I am smaller I feel better, feel better about myself, have more motivation & am less depressed.....so are there any antidepressants that help you lose weight?  I eat about as healthy as I can afford, exercise daily ( no car so I walk everywhere),  and still gained the weight....

I took it for like 3-4 months back in 2010 and it made me feel tired all the time. I stopped taking it because it wasn't doing me any good. I knew it was only putting a bandaid on the problem and decided to go the natural way. It has worked for me. I don't trust any prescription drugs, especially the anti-depressants.
