Yes.  So is diarrhea.  Go figure.  Same with all these meds.  They interfere with the digestive system.  One reason might be that most of the serotonin in our bodies is in the digestive system, not in the brain, but I don't know if that's true.  I just know if you look at the listed side effects, all manner of digestive problems are there, and I've had my share.
