What Causes Nausea After Taking Cipralex?
it is anxiety
Thanks for writing to us. I can understand your concern.
You have undergone all investigations and all are normal. Considering symptoms you have mentioned it is anxiety.
Cipralex and ativan are medicines for anxiety. Nausea is very common side effect of cipralex and that is likely happening with you. I recommend replacement of cipralex with other drug. Please ask your doctor about the same.
For your information I would like t mention treatment for anxiety here.
Specific treatment of anxiety disorder includes both medicines and cognitive behavior therapy(CBT).
In mild cases only CBT is sufficient. In moderate to severe cases initially medicines and then CBT is added. And later on medicines stopped gradually.
If medicines alone are used chances of relapse are more after stopping the medicines.
In medicines SSRI group of drugs(fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline, escitalopram) are main stay of the treatment. Benzodiazepines group of drugs(clonazeapm, lorazepam or etizolam) are used initially for short duration for fast symptomatic relief.
I prefer paxil (paroxetine) over cipralex for anxiety.
Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.
