Would someone please help? I have recently been diagnosed with IBS- C as a result of 2 upper endoscopy, colonscopy and several blood works. I started taking anti-depressant and noticed several side effects such as dry mouth, headaches and dizziness. As a result, I stopped taking the anti-depressant with my doctors advice. My dry mouth and frequent urination continues and I am concerned that my conditions may be a sign of diabetes. My diet always consist of fruits( before the main meal) oatmeal, vegetables, and other healthy items and very few if any bad carbohydrates. Please tell me this in my mind and not reality. Thanks! Anthony

Seeing as this is a recent situation, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Dry mouth and frequent urination can be caused by many things and they're not all serious. It could just be a side effect of the antidepressant that hasn't gone away yet.

If you can't give it some time then by all means ask the doctor to check your blood sugar levels - either the standing or fasting glucose test.
