Hi roadtrip,Here are a couple of links that you may find helpful:
hi guys, thanx for the responses
Yeah the anti-depressants aren't for depression as such. the doc has only given me doses of 10mg which she says are so small that they won't affect my 'head' and also are not addictive (normal doses are from 25mg all the way up to 150mg).
No, they're strictly for the ibs to target the sensors in the gut which send messages to the brain, so i was just wondering if anyone had been prescribed something similar soley for ibs?
yeah i will do, but i'm not sure when i'm gonna start taking them tho!
i'm trying some other stuff at the mo and also thinking about trying fibre supplements first - but if i do start taking them i'll keep you posted!

sorry mads, i don't have any answers to your questions - i suffer from alot of gas/bloating as well, although i've heard people mention gas-x and beano on here which are supposed to be quite good ...
for your other questions, i would recomend starting a new specific thread so that some one else might be able to help you
