It is nice to hear that you go to Gym regularly.
One of the main causes of Irritable Bowel syndrome(IBS) is Stress/Tension.
It has to be controlled first.
Normaxin contains Chlordiazepoxide is an anxiolytic.So,there is no need for another anxiolytic drug.
Actually,it has to be taken 3-4 times a day before food.
Normaxin can be taken till your symptoms are relieved and there are no side effects.
The response varies from one individual to another
There is no particular time limit for Normaxin.
Wish you good health
Practise Yoga/Meditation for better results.

As far as i know,there is no drug that is available with combination of Clinidium bromide and Dicyclomine.
But,in clinical practise,i got best results with Pre and Probiotic capsule instead of Normaxin.
You can stop bupron and continue with Normaxin.
Wish you good health
