What you describe is VERY common with IBS. Actually, it is the change in hormones around the time of your period that makes IBS worse. Sounds like your Dr is not listening to you. This too is common with IBS. You may want to find another one that truly understands IBS. There are other meds that will help with anxiety.

Perhaps an SSRI or tri-cyclic antidepressant would help. Because of the chemical involved in IBS (Serotonin) low dose antidepressants help ibs symptoms.AZ
