IBS-D is irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea.  IBS-C is IBS with constipation.  IBS-A is IBS that alternates between diarrhea and constipation.

Dx means diagnosis.  Rx means prescription. 

Hope this helps you.

I used to be on Zoloft which is a SSRI type antidepressant which also treats anxiety disorder and OCD. It worked really good for me however these type of meds seem to stop working at a point which is what happened to me. It did help with the anxiety which can in turn help you out with your bowels.
