Check with the doc prescribing this med for you. Cilift can affect the GI system, as can any of the antidepressants or other meds affecting serotonin, usually in the form of some mild nausea, though a runny tommy is possible. Falling down sounds like too much of a response, and there are of course other, physical possible causes for tyhese symptoms, soit'd be best to get checked out by your doc.
Stopping an antidepressant too soon, because you're feeling fine, can be like stopping an antibiotic too soon --- it can lead to a return of the problem, maybe even worse ---- IF the diagnosis of depression was properly made the first time round.
The "probiotics" RMC refers to help by replacing some of the normal organisms that live in one's guts ( similarly to some cultures in live yogurt ) which can get wiped out by antibiotics.
