    I don't know if I should post that in here but I just have a question... I'm on citalopram for almost a year now but I still have massive sleeping problems. My doctor said that will go away but she keeps saying that for months now. I was looking on the internet which sleeping pills might help but I'm a bit stuck on this one. Does anyone have an idea what helps best? There are hardly any nights I sleep through, most of the time I keep lying awake for hours and when I finally get some sleep the night is almost over. I also keep on having nightmares which scare me so much that I can't even get out in the morning. Thanks

    Trazadone does help get you to sleep could try that one.

    I was on those and suffered sleep problems with them so my doc changed me over too Mirtazapine. I still suffer sleep problems but not nearly as much as I did with them is there no way you can be switched to a drug that doesn't give you sleep problems?

    I switched already once and I think citalopram is quite okay for me. The only constant negative is the sleeping problem. I tried sleeping pills before but they weren't good as they left me feeling exhausted all day. As I just moved to another country it might be difficult to find a doctor and get prescription as I get citalopram here without prescription in the pharmacy.

    I was on Celexa & Trazodone at the same time...NOT a brilliant idea. Seperately they work well.
    I'm still struggling w/ the slipping issue despite coming off Celexa last July.
    I try & tire myself out during the day, however I still find myself cycling on & off these weird sleep patterns. Not sure what these meds have done for the long run.
