In brief: Depends
Diarrhea as well as abdominal cramping is a very common side effect of escitalopram.
For many people that take it, this side effect lessens and diasppears after a couple of weeks. But not everyone is so lucky. If that is the case then i would consult your doctor and decide if another medication would be more appropriate.
