From this study (1 year ago):
I was diagnosed with Stage 1 endometrial cancer AND stage 1 ovarian cancer. They removed uterus and ovaries which threw me into surgical menopause. Felt constantly anxious and hated it. So started on Citalopram 4 months ago. Finally felt like my old optimistic self. This was a miracle drug for me. Started having diarrhea once or twice a week shortly before or after starting on this med, do not know. Blamed it on being overly stressed at work. Three weeks ago diarrhea was constant for several days, had stool tests which were all normal. Noticed stomach tenderness and some bloating as well which is a bit better but still not gone 2-3 weeks later. Back pain started as well which is quite severe though I do have scoliosis which has not given me any trouble for the past 30 years but could now be aggravated from stomach pain and irritation. Diarrhea is now back to once or twice a week but have had terrible back pain for last 7 days. Doctor did contrast CT to see if my cancer was back ... it is not which is the good news. Tried weaning off citalopram but felt terrible again. Do not want to come off if is isn't the drug that is causing all this trouble. Wondering if others have experienced same thing being on Citalopram.
