I'm on Lexapro for depression and anxiety. Recently, my doctor asked if I would like to increase my dosage to help with my IBS symptoms. I said no, but now I'm wondering if it would have helped more. Is there anyone who is on Lamictal or other antidepressants for controlling IBS? How well does it work?Also, I've had trouble sleeping through the night. I've always had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. My Doctor suggested a perscription sleeping pill. I said no to that too because I've heard about the trouble people have getting off sleeping pills. Has anyone tried them and how well do they work? How hard is it to get off sleeping pills?
