I started taking citalopram 10mg 8 days ago for anxiety. Almost from the first ten minutes of taking the first dose i started having really bad diarrhoea. I stopped taking citalopram after 6 days because i was having awful cramps, still had diarrhoea and started to vomit. I cant get an appointment with my doc until next week. I understood there would be side effects but ive not managed to keep anything in my body and I feel absolutely shocking and still have the runs and nausea. Was i taking it long enough to get withdrawal symptoms? Has anyone had chronic diahrrea as a side effect? When will i be back to normal?
