    Most of the medications in this family for depression - work with serotonin and could cause Nausea/ vomiting and diarrhe, these should improve in next week , if still concerned , can have her take1/2 tablet  it for 1 week  and increase to 1 tab.

    Agree with above , unless this is very serious issue - avoid meds but might have been evauated by Psych
