Hi all, any advice on Amptriptyline for IBS-C / Anxiety?
I have had to come off Fluoxetine, as it upset my tummy.
My constipation is not the case of the stool difficult to pass, but I only go a tiny amount, even strong laxatives do not remove most of the build up.
I believe the anxiety has just made my bowl say NO, I am not going to work until you calm down, ( easier said than done! )
I realise I must now look into relaxation techniques as well as antidepressants.
The FODMAP diet and probiotics worked well for a time, but not any more.
