Our expert says:
Trepilene is an antidepressant but it also has an effect on nerve pain, like the pain caused by shingles, restless leg syndrome, and irritable bowel syndrome. They think it is because it modify the way the pain impulses are carried to the brain. It is a well known and effective treatment for IBS and you can continue taking it. It may make you sleepy, so take it early in the evening so that you don't feel groggy the next day. If you are constipated, it can aggravate it slightly so take a stool softener like Lactulose syrup or Fybogel orange every evening.
