Can anyone anyone please help. She is in a great deal of anxiety over this. If this is not the right forum to ask maybe someone can let me know where the appropriate forum is. Thanks
You must be a good and caring friend.
It's her medication as it is a known to have many possible side effects
and primarily is prescribed for depression as it is a tetracyclic antidepressant.
She should discuss it with her prescribing doctor and have it changed soon to a med better suited to her, as after prolonged use , it may difficult to get off it.
It has been associated with significant withdrawal issues.
Best thing for her to do is PUSH for a proper dx, so the root of the problem can be addressed and not just a band-aid solution, which in this case has some serious consequences.
Because digestive and G/I problems are complicated, doctors normally take the short cut of presrribing meds, that "may" work for the patient, to ease the symptoms. Usually the meds don't correct anything.
My daughter a few years ago was in a similar position and refused any meds without a proper dx.
Now she's a doing lot better after seeing an ND.
