I have just started Celexa - been taking it in morning and it makes me sleepy. Should I take it at night so? My side effects are headaches and diarrhoea.
Hi, Ellie! Chances are in a few days you'll become accustomed to your new medication but there's no reason not to take it at night if it makes you drowsy. That way you can just sleep through it.
Simple OTC preparations such as PeptoBismol and ibuprofen should take care of your side effects until they too resolve in a few days to a week or so.
Best regards and good luck to you. It'll be worth it. Wildcat
