I posted this thread in the D category also...Just a little info: I've had D-predominant IBS for the past 4 years. The physical effects are not as bad as they used to be, considering I started taking some meds. But the mental effects are worsening by the day. I take immodium daily, 2 to 3 pills, and it seems to work pretty well; Only a few cases where it failed. My ibs isn't too severe, about 2 or 3 D-attacks a month, but it seems that the anxiety is much worse.I have trouble doing any simple daily activity, because my IBS is always on my mind. Things like seeing people jogging down the street, make me think to myself, "I couldn't do that, what if I had a D-attack; where would a bathroom be?" And thinking this way all the time really has severe effects on me socially, academically, and mentally. So I finally decided to go see a psycholigist, because the general practice doctors never have seemed to help me. I am just curious what you folks would recommend me asking about (certain medicines for anxiety), and what medicines seem to work for you (for anxiety and IBS-d)? Thanks for your input!
