Hey I have been on Escitalopram for three months. I started on 5mg and worked up to 15mg. I have been on 15mg for 2.5 weeks.

For the last few months I have been struggling with nausea. I wake up most mornings feeling sick to my stomach and will dry rech and shake. The nausea goes after 1-3 hours but will usually return intermittently throughout the day. Every now and again I will vomit. My appetite is also pretty poor.

The tricky thing is that the nausea is a symptom of my anxiety but it may also be a side effect of the medication.

It’s really getting me down as it is exhausting dealing with it everyday. I feel scared.

If anyone has any suggestions or thoughts I would be grateful.

Thanks
