Hi. I have been taking both anti-depressant and anxiety meds (beta blockers) for 12 months and have not experienced any advantages of this to help with shy bowel. They have, however, helped with the general social phobia I was experiencing but I believe that shy bowel is more of a learned behaviour from childhood and there is no quick fix. Learned behaviour needs to be unlearned..and that doesn't seem possible, at the moment anyway. 40 years and counting...
