I usually post on the crohn's website, but i Have a new doctor and she is noticing that stress is aggravating my condition and I am getting increased diarrea and has decided to start me on 10 mgs per day (low dose) of Pamelor?  Has anyone tried this for their IBS symptoms? It's is a tricyclic antidepressant that is supposed to help with stress and anxiety.  If anyone has any information about it, please let me know.  I take one pill before bedtime as it's supposed to make me drowsy. Thanks.

Hi Jenn, welcome to IBS-land. Nortriptyline has been used "off-label" for treatment of IBS and this and other tricyclics do seem to have a constipating effect in some people. I have not tried it personally, but I do believe there are other members on the board who have taken similar drugs. Keep us updated on how it works for you :)
