    Hi Sally

    when we are anxious, we use up glucose at a high rate. Sometimes with anxiety, we can also go off our food and not eat as well as we should. I would suggest that as soon as you wake up in the morning, you eat a banana, some cashew nuts and have a glass of milk for brekkie. Once you have a nutritious meal, your body will start to feel better. The nausea will subside really soon.

    best wishes

    Hi Sally

    I've been taking Citralopram for over 10 years (life long meds) and initially I felt quite sick, but this side effect wore off.  I take mine in the morning, but whatever time of day you take it, make sure you don't take it on an empty stomach.  I had many side effects, but they all wore off after a while.

    I'm pleased to say that this medication has kept my depression and anxiety away and I'm 'as happy as Larry' biggrin   I hope it works as well for you.

    Best wishes, and good luck x
