Anti-anxiety and anti-depressants are actually supposed to help IBS symptoms. At least that's what the docs say. I'm not on any but my best bud is (she has IBS too). She's on Ativan and loves it... I think the only thing it does is make her a bit sleepy. BUT, I do have a male friend who was on Zoloft and the only complaint he had was sexual. He said it drastically impacted his sex drive. He never had any bowel troubles though, so I have no idea what it would do for an IBSer.
Hopefully someone will be along shortly who has had experience with it.
