Hey everyone. I'm back to having IBS D again. Basically my symptoms started around last year while I was on anafranil. My stools were kind of slimier than usual, but i didn't make too much of it. eventually things got worse and worse.I went off of anafranil and the diarrhea and gastritis symptoms persisted for a month or two, but then i became severely constipated.Right before school, I started taking anafranil again. Now my diarrhea is back. I'm not a particularly stressed guy and I'm a part time student. I don't think it is stress that is causing these problems.However...I was wondering if taking a tricyclic anti depressant can cause constipation for a few months at first, then gradually turn into diarrhea at time. I know people use them to treat IBS-D, but I was wondering if they can eventually become the CAUSE of it over time. Any thoughts?
