Re: Do you take celexa in the morning or at night ? Why

When i took 10mg of celexa I took it at dinner time. It made me sort of sleepy a few hours after taking it.

when I went to an increase I had to split my dose. 10mg in the late morning and 10mg at night.

It really all depends on your system and how you respond.

Celexa can have a sedating effect and some drs. suggest taking it around 7pm. I take it about 9 or 10pm. If I take it in the morning I am groggy all day. Godbless

Re: Do you take celexa in the morning or at night ? Why

I take mine (10mg) at about 4 p.m. and it doesn't seem to energize or sedate me, so I guess that's a good thing. The only reason I take it at that time is when I started it a week ago that's when my prescription got filled. I was going to wait and take it before bed but was so anxious about it I didn't want to put it off. So since then I've just taken it at the same time.
