I just joined this forum and saw your post about your new drug that seems to be working. Now that it has been a couple weeks, how is your IBS-D? Have you noticed any side effects? How about your overall mood?
I ask because I too have IBS-D, for 10 years, though only found out what I had about 2 years ago. I have done the standard stomach/intestine tests. Right now I am on Paxil, and I don't know how much it is helping, if any at all. I have tried Lotronex too. Both of these are anti-anxiety/depression medications since my doc believes my ibs-d is stress induced. Which I concur - however, I have yet to find a medication that really helps with IBS-D. Lotronex seemed to help more than Paxil did but it still was not great.
I also have low cholesterol levels - my overall health outside of iBS-D, in terms of blood pressure, cholesterol etc, is excellent.
