I was reading some posts yesterday and by accident found the term "Narcotic Bowel Syndrome". It was the first time I ever heard of that (2 years with IBS, I can't figure out why)I'm intereset in your opinions about this. So far I read very sparse information. I don't know how is anyone diagnosed having it, although I found that treatment usually focus in the mind-gut connection, even using Tricyclic antidepressants.The reason I'm asking is that I developed IBS after an antibiotic course because of pneumonia. But I didn't remember until now that while doing the antibiotics I also took benzodiazepines (Rivotril, small dosage) for about 4 months, mainly because I was too stressed out. It was my doctor's idea.Can Rivotril be considered a Narcotic?And even further, I remember a little more than a year ago being prescribed with Lexapro (for 3 months), an antidepresant, which in the end messed up with my sex drive and didn't help my IBS.Perhaps I'm just worring too much, but I want to learn more about this Narcotic Bowel thing just in case. And of course, incidentally, my main symptom has always been abdominal pain.Thanks.
