Crohns question


I had issues for about 4 years....which was finally diagnosed as crohns.

Current thinking was that adrenal fatigue from super high stress life caused cascading effect which crashed many of my systems including immune and digestive.

Did the whole treatment plan, including humira and 6-MP. Changing lifestyle help put symptoms in remissions to large degree. Also getting my hormone adrenal levels back in line have also helped.

What I am finding however is that I still have some latent depression and anxiety and when this boils over symptoms flare up.

I have heard of success in treating crohns with wellbutrin....considering it might blunt my anxiety which causes my flares it might be worth it. If it weren't for the crohns symptoms I would just suck up the mental part but it definitely cause me physical damage.

Does anyone here use wellbutrin for their crohns? What results, benefits, side effects etc.? How bout sexual issues...disease has impacted this enough for me would prefer it would help sex not hamper...make more relaxed at thought of it etc.

Thanks for any info etc.


Does anyone h

Re: Crohns question

Years ago I read some things about Prozac and other antidepressants being potentially helpful for Crohn's Colitis (my particular version). I took Prozac for about six months and didn't see much improvement. I did see a decrease in sex drive.
