Anyone on Citalopram having night sweats?

I haven't noticed it when I slept at my mum's and her duvet was a lot thinner than mine. When it first happened, I thought that I had wet myself blush, then I realised that the pillow and duvet were wet as well..... then it happened every night and I googled it.

Maybe I should sleep with the window vented then, although I have been so cold I have been shutting it.!

Thanks smile

Yes, it's a known side effect. I now sleep with a light weight duvet and the window open all year round. Other AD's are the same. Thankfully the positives outweigh the side effects
Good luck

I've been on Citalopram for several months and for the past couple, I've been waking up every morning drenched in sweat in a soaking wet bed, sheet, pillow, duvet cover the lot. Then I feel really cold and wet.

It's horrible. Has anybody else suffered with this? I haven't mentioned it to my doctor but I have read online that its a recognised side effect.
