I've had IBS-D since I was about 20/21 years old. My symptoms have gotten steadily worse over the last 10 years to the point where it greatly affects my daily life. I am looking into all possible treatment options and anti-depressants have recently come up. I have to admit, that the success stories make it sound tempting... But I'm concerned with the side effects, especially considering that my job is fast paced and requires that I be dynamic, think on my feet and have a good deal of focus. I have this vision of being in fog, or at the very least, just not being sharp. Can anyone convey their experiences with these types of drugs?
