My GI doctor suggested I take tiny doses of something like Prozac to help with my "sensitive stomach" since everything I eat hurts me and I've ruled out all other possible causes. This seems like my only answer for now although I'm not crazy about the idea, even if it is a tiny dose. Does anyone have experience with this?
