Our expert says:
IBS is definitely aggravated by stress. You do have symptoms of depression at the moment too, and a low dose of the antidepressant Amitriptylene or something like Fluoxetine may help for both the conditions. You will need a prescription though. As IBS is such a chronic debilitating disease, this also leads to anxiety and depression, so it is sometimes very difficult to decide which came first!
I really hope this will help!
