    Just started taking citalopram for anxiety today, how long will it take to start working? And also how long til the side affects start? It's been 3 hours and already got a headache, feel a bit sick and dizzy but not sure if it's from lack of sleep last night or because of the citalopram, thanks.

    Anxiety and sleeping too long

    Do you find it ramps up your anxiety or maybe it's just me? Slept for 11 hours and woke up feeling really anxious with a headache thrown in to make things worse. It's not the first time I've slept too long and noticed this increase in anxiety.
