Re: [IP] birth control-anti depressant?-stomach probs



Hi Julie

My thoughts are that the meds you are taking have made you feel better (esp
the anti depressant/anxiety) and less anxious about your D and has aided in
your controling your bs levels.  My two cents worth-who knows!  Sincerely
Carol T.
