Anyone taking Librax, Desipermine, or Lexapro for functional dyspepsia? I'm at the end of my rope here and Lexapro is my last ditch hope.
I've had the endoscopy and my gastro doc found nothing, so he told me I have non-ulcer functional dyspepsia. Librax gave me insomnia and caused me to look very bloated. Desipermine (I'm sorry, I don't think I'm spelling it correctly) constipated me. I just started Lexapro today. I know the Mayo Clinic is doing a study using Lexapro to treat Functional Dyspepsia.
added note: I decided against Lexapro after doing some reading about it. I went back to Desipramine. The constipation turned out to be a temporary side effect. I still have some episodes but they do not appear to be as severe or last as long.
