I, too, have anxiety induced IBS. I'm 19 and have had IBS for about 6 years, but was just diagnosed 2 years ago. My doctor just prescribed Zoloft for my anxiety, which seems to work wonders. I really like it. However, it completely, and totally took away every bit of sex drive that I had (which was a lot lol) so, I'm trying to decide if it's worth it or not. My boyfriend says it's my call. He doesn't want me to be in pain, but I'd like my libido back.....Anyhow, aside form the zoloft helping, I've recently fallen in love with Immodium. It's a little more expenive than other diarrhea meds, but is better, in my opinion. If I have something stressful coming up, or if I have to get up early (that does it to me too), I take 2 before I go to bed the night before and 2 in the morning and I'm fine all day long. That being sad, A LOT of my stress comes from the fact that I'm afraid I'm going to get a D attack in public, which in reality happens very very rarely.Oh also, how is the DA working for you? I used it for about 2 weeks and it didn't do a thing for me.. Tasted like candy, which was nice, but didn't effect my system at all...Luckily I got it on sale and had a coupon, so I only paid like, $6 for it...
