I need some reassurance or advice prior to my appointment with the Gp as im in a panicky state. Has anyone suffered with incontinence whilst taking citalopram?

Im 31 with no children and ive had incontinence for around 3wks. I did have a cold which I thought might be a factor as I had a nasty cough but the now the cough has gotten alot better and hardly there. But the incontinence has stayed? Help

Many thanks x

    I haven't had incontinence not sure this is a side effect of the Med but definitely mention it to your doctor !

    I've been on 40mg for 7 months

    I do urinate more often it seems and more urgently not sure if that's from this Med or other ones I'm on. Good luck

    I had quite some episodes of diarrhea and still have them from time to time (I hate them!) but never really incontinence. However, I've read some 2 or 3 postings of people who had real bad cases (no time to reach the WC in time). You should definitely mention that to your doc.

    I suffer with bile salt malabsorption, side effect of gall bladder removal but not incontinence unless I'm laughing....

    I would double check this with your GP
