Discussions that mention lexapro

Back Problems board


I suffer from IBS and lately it has really been acting up. I stopped taking Lexapro about 2 weeks ago (after only a month of taking it), as well as stopped taking my daily supplement of fish oil this week. Since then, my IBS has been worse- really bad today- and my lower left side directly under my rib cage- and around to my back - has been hurting. Are all of these symptoms related to IBS? And, I've read that both the Lexapro and fish oil can cause these symptoms. Can someone please share some insight into this for me? I'm really nervous. Thanks!
