Hello - I'm 45 and have been on 20mg of Citalopram for Anxiety and IBS (D) since about November. Since December I have had this really annoying cough which is ten times worse at night but constantly tickling my throat throughout the day as well. Today I actually ACHE from coughing so much. Apparently the earliest Doctors appointment I can get is 10 days time (great). I did actually go the doctor just before Christmas with regards to my cough but my Doctor said they weren't aware of Coughing being a side affect of Citalopram - but I feel sure it must be?!
Has anyone else experienced this? I am loathed to come of my meds as I am feeling so much better (emotionally and my IBS seems better under control) but I'm not sure I can crack on much longer with this cough.
Any advice would be great, thank you !
