    weirdly enough my nausea has been pretty bad the second time round. I'm 15 weeks in and still get nausea every so often. peppermint tea or just plain hot water helps. anti nausea tablets make me sleepy so I cant take them through the day lol

      I'm in my 3rd week now, on top of nausea, I am getting heartburn and stomach pain. pain was so bad i went to emerg .

      the doctor there said continue and take 20mg instead of the 10mg .talked to the pharmacist this morning she said , I shouldnt be feeling worse with my stomach .said to skip today and see if i get relief. not sure what to do at this point .

      Where is you're stomach pain upper or lower?

      Best thing for heartburn prevention is omeprazole (from GP) and Gaviscon, Rennies, Tums for immediate relief from your chemist.

      If you're having lower abdo pain, Buscopan is really good. I even use it for period pain.

      Side effects are temporary it's up to you whether you want to stick it out or go back to your gp. 2 weeks is still early.

      SJ95753, Tks for your reply.

      upper part of stomach , I'm now taking Omprazole twice a day . doctor wants me to continue at 10mg , till stomach settles down . I stared March 14, it's a month now ....i was on celexa since 2017 was nauseated for 2 weeks then went away .I was on it since last Dec. it's odd that I'm getting such bad stomach issues. of most of the things I have tried celexa seems the one to help with depression

      do you think a month is long for this kind of side effect ?

      Love your name , it was my mom's !

      I am still feeling nausea with stomach pain. eating lots of yogurt !

      going to go to walk in clinic an also talk to the pharmacist. I was in celexa in 2017 till Dec 2018. I was nauseated for 2 weeks.then it went away .not sure why this is happening again that I re-started it.

      Hope your day was good. starting first day is hard, as we don't know what side effects will be.

      Take deep breaths !
