Day time tiredness

Postby steve26 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 1:21 pm


I was diagnosed with depression about a year ago and have been taking 30mg of Citalopram. Broadly speaking I feel ok. But one thing is really bugging me and it is stopping me from considering next steps. Basically, I feel incredibly sleepy around lunchtime and pretty much everyday take a nap for an hour. I have tried to work through the tiredness or have gone for a walk - but nothing works accept actually taking the sleep and then wake feeling refreshed and ready to go again.

I have a normal night's sleep and am not restless or disturbed. I have tried swapping the time I take my medicine from morning to evening - but it has made no difference. So this is my question - is this tiredness I'm experiencing a likely side effect of my medicine or my actual depression? I want to start coming off the drugs - but I'm not sure how wise that is with this detail in my life!

If anyone has some thoughts I'd be grateful.
