I have been on amitriptyline for years which basically cures my ibs all together on most days and is absolutely my saviour in life... however I increasingly struggled to cope with the chronic fatigue wooly headed feeling and hangover effect of the drug. As a result of this discussion my doctor has given me gabapentin to take instead.. I am extremely cautious about taking this drug as I cannot find any proof of supporting ibs on the Internet unlike amitriptyline which is widely used and successfully I might add.
I have been off my amitriptyline for a week now and am suffering hurrendously from my former ibs hell as I cautiously hold off taking this this new medication
Has anyone used gabapentin for ibs and did it work??????
