Patient Comments: Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) - Constipation

If you have IBS-related constipation, what are the triggers? What dietary changes have you made?

Comment from: manpreet singh, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: January 08

I'm suffering from IBS since last 5 years. I am taking fluoxetine 20 mg and now getting full relief with this medicine but when I try to withdraw this medicine my symptoms relapse. I avoid fast food and all types of drinks.
