... depression, & sleep problems for about 3 months. I have been taking Citalopram (Celexa) 20mg for 5 1/2 weeks, and my doctor just recently increased the dose to 30 mg three days ago. I also take 1 mg of Ativan daily. I take 0.5 in the afternoon, and 0.5 Ativan with 25 mg Hydroxyzine and 2mg Melatonin at bedtime. I am just hoping that the Celexa will really work for me and I will be able to feel more like myself again and be able to sleep on my own again! I really want to totally wean off of the Ativan. Any advice or just encouraging words please!
