Is it normal to still be very tired after being on 5mg of Celexa for 1 week and 10 mg for 3 weeks?

Celexa has some antihistamine properties, like benadryl so some people take it at night

Hi, horselady! Sidekick's response hits the nail on the head! Unusual sleepiness and/or drowsiness is one of the most common side effects of the initial dosing of Celexa and usually resolves over several weeks. Try taking it at night, but if the drowsiness isn't resolving let your doctor know because she/he may elect to temporarily lower your dose again until your metabolism better adjusts to the drug.
Is it normal? Though it may be an unwanted effect it's not unexpected ~ you're not experiencing something weird!
