Like any other drugs, the antidepressants may have crossover usages. It may not be that you were depressed, but that the action of the drug you took, antidepressant or not, calmed your digestive tract as a “side effect”. I was given anti-depressants for a while last winter for the pain of my frozen shoulder. The doctor knew I wasn’t depressed, but said that this particular drug also alleviated nerve pain.
