I was put on citalopram back in March. 20mg daily. The first 2 weeks I was sleepy and occasionally nauseous. Things began to settle down and I felt ok. Then mid May I woke up in the night feeling terrible heart racing and had sickness and diarrhoea. I was OK for a day or 2 then it came back again and again for over 2 weeks I kept getting woken in the night with sickness and diarrhoea. I was tested for everything going.
I told the doctor I thought the citalopram was causing the symptoms but she dismissed that theory. I came off it completely and waited 2 weeks before trying setralin. An hour after taking I felt sick and had diarrhoea. So I didn't touch those again either as I have a phobia of being sick.
Since then I'm not on any anti depressants but my stomach has been terrible. Acid heartburn 24/7
and pain in my stomach with a dry lump in my oesophagus. I've had a scan and an endoscopy blood tests and stool samples all come back normal. I'm at my wits end with this stomach acid, it's taking over my life. Has anyone else experienced this?
I've been prescribed Ranitidine and gavisgon. I've tried Lansoprozol but it gives me diarrhoea and omeprazol doesn't touch the amount of acid I'm producing.
