I can't get mad anymore; else, it causes digestive issues.


Recommended Posts

My digestive problems first started in 2012; I got a stressful job in a lab where I had to work 10hr  per day and had very little time to drink water. The job was more like servitude in a sweatshop. I was on 300mg of Bupropion.  Diverticulitis put me in the hospital for a week, with a month of stay-at-home care. The following year, the next attack placed me in the hospital for a week, then I endured a two-month recovery. Since then, if I have been under stress or get angry, my digestive issues come back. In 2017, my husband suggested that my antidepressants caused my digestive problems. Diverticulitis came back after I ate a lot of restaurant food one we when to visit family out of state. In late 2018, I started my taper.  

Just this week, I fought with my husband. After eating restaurant food, and quite a large quantity of sugar, I started to get the first symptoms of a diverticulitis attack. I'm at 22-mg of Bupropion.  

I'm wondering if I will ever heal my digestive system? It seems like stress or anger causes digestive issues. How can I live if I can't get angry or handle stress?


Does antidepressants destroy the digestive system?

1999-2000 Slow taper off of Xanax nonsupportive by my 'doctor' at the time.
