If you're getting diarrhea on Lexapro, there are always other antidepressants that help both IBS and depression like Elavil, Tofranil, Doxepin, Cymbalta, and some others.

The tricyclic antidepressants are really good at stopping diarrhea and helping the pain of IBS, as well as helping the depression side of things.

I have IBS and had to come off of Lexapro because of the diarrhea. I can't tolerate any SSRI's, but can tolerate all the tricyclics (elavil, tofranil, doxepin).
