I've been on Lexapro for a couple years (and on and off Zoloft before that) for anxiety and depression. I'd been doing really well, and was starting to get tired of the side effects (specifically, reduced ability to orgasm). My psychiatrist suggested I wean myself off the Lexapro.I started cutting them in half, and started noticing some tummy problems (mainly diarrhea). I stopped them completely, and started having serious abdominal pain. I went to a GI specialist who told me about the connection.Has this happened to anyone else? I've started Hyoscyamine, and if it doesn't work, I'll get a colonoscopy. GI suggested I not get back on the Lexapro unless I have to. I appreciate that, but it's not like I have any sex life at all with this pain!Is IBS really that connected to anxiety/brain chemistry? It doesn't seem like anyone knows what causes it.
