Hallo Al
Citalopram is used for depression and anxiety, and Toplep for epilepsy and some chronic pain syndromes. Toplep can make you very sleepy and tired. Do not take him off the tablets without discussing it with the specialist. Rather tell him that the side effects are too difficult for him and ask him to try an alternative medication.
Here are the package inserts if you want to read more about the side effects
