    Took 20mg for 3 months. I am taking 40mg for almost 2 years now. At first the side effects were horrible. Then I got a new doctor and she told me to take it in the morning instead of in the evening. I love it now. Everything is perfect.

No real side effects except he needs to take it in the morning. Doctor is now decreasing dosage to wean him off in preference of a new drug. This change, 2 weeks in, seems to be doing the trick.

    I started taking 20mg about 3 months ago. I noticed a difference after a couple of weeks, but after a couple of months I didn't feel I was as happy as I wanted to be. I tried adding Wellbutrin so that I could also quit smoking. The side affects were bad for me and I hadn't cut down on the smoking. I switched to 40mg of Citalopram two weeks ago and it's working amazingly for me. After b ... Show Full Comment
