  2. General Discussion
    Hi all - 27y/o female with PI-IBS going on 3 months now.

  4. Your Story
    My IBS-C (constipation) started when I began taking ZOLOFT. I weaned myself off and the symptoms stayed around until I completely changed my diet, but 3 years later my anxiety has resurfaced big time and I need to go back on anti-depressants, but I am afraid of getting constipated again.

  9. Prescription Medications
    Hey guys, I just started taking nortriptyline for my IBS on July 4th. My doctor told me to start taking 10 mg every night at bedtime and once the side effects passed and if I didn't notice any relief than I could increase it to 20 mg then 30 mg as needed. I am now up to 30 mg for the past week...
