I’m new to this site.  For many years, I’ve been told by doctors that I suffered from IBS.

Usually, my episodes would come & go, & didn’t debilitate me too much.  Often, symptoms would come on in times of stress. But, now that I’m older, for the past 2 yrs, they’ve been constant. I am plagued daily with constant stomach gurgling, excessive burping, gas, & bloating which  are worse after eating.  I’ve had numerous GI tests & bloodwork, & all were within normal range.

I have taken the antidepressant, Lexapro for many years.  Prior to the past 2 yrs, I had no gastric issues while on this drug.  But, now I’m wondering if I’ve hit a tolerance with it, & it is giving me these symptoms.  It does say gastric issues can be a side effect to these drug.  Any input would be appreciated.
