I’m not one for taking meds of any kind but ive been feeling so bad lately with my symptoms that I need some extra help.
I do, sometimes take colpermin and charcoal but they are not helping anymore with the constant growling, spasm type feeling and bad wind.
The gastroenterologist I saw last week has recommended that I go on antidepressants which I’ve always been a bit apprehensive about tbh as I’m already very anxious and the thought of any extra side effects and weight gain would just about finish me off!
Anyhow, I will consider them but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone has had any success with any IBS meds, either otc or prescription? If I can control my symptoms, I’m sure my anxiety and depression would subside too?!
I’ve also just started the low fodmap diet (strictly this time as I usually fall off the wagon!). It’s early days, I know but Ive been on it for 2 days and my symptoms are just the same!
