> Have either one of you ever tried carafate or motilium. I tried motilium with some success, but had some funky female side-effects so quit. I have never tried carafate, but I am considering it. As for Dr. Shipko's site, I used to go there when I first started using the internet about 10 or so years ago. I have read and researched just about everything he has said, but I disagree with his anti-SSRI stance. I couldn't get by the fact that he basically tries to freak people out about the SSRI's so I quit going to his site. I do agree with his open attitude for the use of minor tranquilizers. I tend to be more open minded with regards to mental-illness, nothing is black and white. Anyways, just my opinion.

I never tried those two meds. My interest is in experimenting with calcium-channel blockers (specifically verapamil which is listed on the link you gave-also my pdoc has brought this up). IsoM has posted here a few times about Dicotel which is a CCB (available only in Canada however). I am curious about whether using a CCB like verapamil might alleviate the IBS/reflux/GI instability I have associated with meds and panic symptoms. I recently found out that verapamil has been used with some success to treat diarrhea associated with lithium use. Neurontin (which has selective calcium ion-channel blockade properties) nearly eliminated my IBS symptoms (at high doses), but I got some other unwanted effects with higher dose Neurontin which makes it tough for me to take (costo-chondroital pain, and esophogeal spasm).
