Was on fluoxetine for about 3 years for anxiety. Seemed to work well controlling anxiety with very few side effects for the first 2 years. Last year I started having intestinal problems and a colonoscopy found me to have severe inflammation in my lower intestine. Was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. However, for the last month and a half I've abstained from taking the fluoxetine and my intestinal problems have gotten much better (regular stools, less frequent, no pain in bowels). Possible connection?
