> I couldn't take zoloft for that reason. Actually, when used for IBS, tricyclics are generally effective at very low doses. Amitriptyline has been successful at doses as low as 2.5 mg (not a misprint), so 25 mg might be plenty. You might be able to give up the Dictel or use less of it. What is Dictel?

Well, that dose does not counteract the Zoloft, in any case. I can't say I've had an IBS attack lately, either. It's harder to notice the absence of something, I think.

Dicetel is pinaverium bromide, which is a quaternary ammonium compound that specifically blocks intestinal calcium channels. I get it for free, via a compassionate drug policy.
