Every time I eat my stomach hurts and I poop and I get diarrhea. I'm afraid to eat because of this. What should I do? I'm on antidepressants & anti- anxiety meds.

In brief: Seek help

Sometimes stomach problems can be side effects of medications used for anxiety and depression.
However, for some people, stomach problems can also be a symptom of continued anxiety. You should consult with your prescriber.

In brief: See your doc

Meds may cause symptoms, anxiety and depression may cause symptoms, but people who have GI diseases may also have the above.
Need an evaluation, especially if fever, weight loss, bleeding, awakening at night because of symptoms(pain, diarrhea). Likely need to see a GI doc for full evaluation.
