I've been suffering with a severe case of IBS for almost a year now, and am trying to get my stomach pains and nausea under control. I've had mild depression for about 10 years now, but ever since I was diagnosed with IBS, it's gotten a lot worse. I've been avoiding taking any medication for depression because I am worried about the side effects, but I feel like I am at my breaking point with this. I am wondering if anybody diagnosed with IBS have also been suffering with depression and have been taking medication for it. Has it helped? Or made things worse?
Thanks in advance!
