I'm curious......are any of you on an antidepressant that you feel has really helped your GI tract?
I'm in the process of trying to find out what's wrong with me......nauseated, dizzy, anxious, headaches, fatigue, feeling like poop all the time, etc., etc., etc., and I truly feel that something somewhere in me is wrong. But I'm not sure we're going to find out what it is. If something isn't "inside the box", I fear the docs ain't gonna find it.
But.....I've heard alot of how antidepressants can help things like fibromylagia, IBS, etc., and I think I'm almost willing to give them a try. I'm scared to death, since I get so many side-effects from things, plus there's always hell to pay when trying to come off them.
I would never go on Effexor. My doc mentioned zoloft. He said "that's one of the ones we use on older people 'cause they can get so many side effects". Who you callin' OLDER??? hahaha
Anyhow........I'm interested in your experiences with them. Thanks.
