My depression and anxiety & stress level go away... BUT... the terrible, awful, smelly, uncontrollable gas I'm passing, is unbarable! So, I went to a health food store and started on digestive enzymes, high potency probiotics, fennel tea, apple cider vinegar. Thinking I had an overload of Bad bacteria and needed help with digestion. Fennel tea seems to help a bit. Any one else with this issue, and did anything help you, besides quitting taking the celexa. Will this awful smell go away in time? Please help, before my family disownes me, due to my uncontrolabling passing this super fowl smelling gas. Thanks!
After looking over the link, probably a good idea to present this dilemma to your Dr in the event it's a symptom of something else that needs attention, or at least a solution to the "matter."
