Citalopram and nausea

(3 Posts)

I've been on Citalopram for about 2 months now, for anxiety.

I had quite a few side effects to start, and when my dose was upped (20mg daily now). The only side effect remaining is nausea, but it's a lot of the time.

I take it before bed to try and counteract this, but it doesn't seem to work. I feel sick a lot, especially when I haven't eaten for a bit. Oh and drinking alcohol does NOT go well at the moment!! envy

Has anyone else had this? Does it go away or am I stuck with it?

Thank you

I felt constantly sick on it. I had to nibble things like crisps or crackers constantly to keep the bile down. I put on loads of weight. I think I was on 40 or maybe 60mg at the top though.

I've not had that with other ADs, so if it seems like this is what you're facing, I think you ought to see if you can start something else. I've had like weird feelings, sickly moments, but not that constant nausea I had on citalopram

I was on it for years and no obviously sickness with it. Maybe it's not for you, ask your GP sometimes they can offer you something else along side to help with sickness x
