Sort of embarrassing but here it goes... I have had diarrhea for almost a month now. My regular doc said it is fine to take immodium so that is what I have been doing. But it seems very strange to me still... when I take the immodium the diarrhea will stop for one or two days but when I finally do have a bowel movement it is diarrhea.
The pdoc started me on Zoloft, which I have taken before, almost two months ago slowly increasing in 50 mg increments to 200 mg. A couple days before I saw her, I had been taking 200 mg for several days, I did have diarrhea but when she asked I didn't say anything because I figured it was something I ate.
My pdoc hasn't gotten back to me about this problem. But the last time I saw her the following meds were changed... tapered off Cymbalta, increased Zoloft from 200mg to 300mg, added Welbutrin, Klonopin & Lamictal unchanged.
I take synthroid and zoloft in the morning on an empty stomach before I get out of bed (pharmacist and pdoc both said this was fine). Take the Welbutrin with food around noon.
Anyone have similiar problems or any ideas for what I should do? Will this pass with time?
