Lex and Diarrhea/Stomach problems?

Posted by sideorder on April 16, 2004, at 17:14:24

I know this is kind of a gross subject matter...but, I'm trying to figure out if I have had a stomach virus that's lingering or if my problem is an unpleasant side effect of taking Lex . I've been on Lex for 1 month now and I feel better than I have in years--- my GAD is under control and my depressive moods have not been way as debilitating and usually subside quickly. But, about 12 days ago I got what I thought was a stomach virus/flu and was extremely sick for a week with lower intestinal cramping and severe diarrhea. I eventually went to the doctor last Friday and he told me to let it run its course and to take some fiber tablets to solidify things. Don't feel ill anymore, but still having some gastric problems and some problems with diarrhea---and I never used to get "the runs" or have a crampy/gaseous stomach---I'm a fairly physically healthy guy. I started thinking that MAYBE this is some side effect of the 10mg. of Lex I've been taking...but why would it not start until 2 weeks after taking it.? I hope I'm way off course here and it's not the Lex...cause I would hate to have to get off of it---my life seems halfway bright for the first time in a very very long time. Thought I'd throw this out and see what type of feedback I previous posts replies have been very insightful. Thanks!
