Celexa and constipation

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi everyone!!!

Been on celexa for about a week and severely constipated and my stomach feels uneasy. Anyone experiencing this or have any way to cope with this? I hope this subsides as I don't want to rely on laxatives etc.

Please offer insights!!! Thanks

    There will be a leaflet in the box of  your tablets. Look and see if constipation is on the list. I take this medication and I am not constipated even when I take my Pain medication.

    The drug may upset the tummy although I would look towards your consipation.

    They used to say allow a week before you treat constipation. If you are unsettled talk to your GP about your bowels

    Good Luck
