It takes about 4-6 weeks to reach peak effect.

Hi, Kaismama is correct, i just wanted to answer also as i take Citalopram. When i first started the medication i was prescribed 20mg. As the weeks went by i was finding things really tough, it is common to feel worse before you feel better when started antidepressant medications, and my doctor decided to increase my dose to 40mg, at the 3 week mark, which improved my outlook on life almost immediately. So if you are struggling, this is an option...
