    Hello, thank you very much for the post. How are you. 
    I eventually got a call from the LDT doctor 20th April. 
    She suggested increases in medication or stopping.
    I had already stopped it. 
    Because of the sleep reversal I asked for a short term prescription of sleeping tablets  I was that desperate for him , still not got them! . So, we've had to just get by. It's been tough.
    It was definetly the citalopram that caused it.
    The sleep reversal has stopped so he's gradually getting back to a relatively normal sleep.

    Hi @19681989. I'm glad to hear that he's returning to something approaching normal sleep at least. Have you had any guidance from your doctor about next steps after stopping the citalopram?
