This sounds just like me... but a little opposite right now. I have been on Lexapro for about 7 months now. Before Lexapro, my bowel movements were always urgent and came pretty quickly after meals. They were usually loose and would happen more than once a day. On Lexapro, everything got a lot more regular. No cramps associated with bowel movements, not feeling that urgency, more solid stools, etc. The last month, I have been under TONS of stress - family issues with the holidays, having to cancel my destination wedding due to finances, quitting a job and starting a new one, traveling, etc. I have been getting the cramping, urgency, and loose stools again, several times a day, usually soon after eating. I wonder if it's just stress? Keep me posted on your situation!
