Hello I am 24 male just been diagnosed with Gilbert syndrome, just wondering I am always depressed and struggle with anxiety I have just started taking anti depressants - sertaline, would these interfere with my GS ? I am always feeling sick and stomach pains how can I deal with this ? Is it stress? I'm eating like frozen chicken with batter with croquettes and beans for dinner but before I got diagnosed I would feel OK eating these meals i feel like my stress is making me sick and feel I'll and causing GS symthoms and i think to much of it and always thinking about it, would my anti depressants help me ??? Thanks - cade

    Hi Cade, yes the antidepressants should help you feel better soon. But you may feel worse for a couple of week. Apparently according to the Facebook group stress is a big trigger for GS symptoms. You should join the Facebook group as they are very helpful. I hope you feel better soon Joel
