Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: November 3, 2016)
  • Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) [ Time Frame: Weeks 0, 8, 12 ]
    Clinician-administered 10-item scale measuring depressive symptoms (range 0-60); higher scores indicate greater severity of major depression.
  • Gastrointestinal Symptoms Rating Scale (GSRS) [ Time Frame: Weeks 0, 8, 12 ]
    Clinician-administered 15-item scale measuring IBS symptoms (range 15-105); higher score indicates greater IBS severity.
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: December 18, 2012)
  • Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) [ Time Frame: Up to week 12 ]
  • Gastrointestinal Symptoms Rating Scale (GSRS) [ Time Frame: Up to week 12 ]
Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: November 3, 2016)
  • Clinician-Rated Global Impression Scales (CGI) [ Time Frame: Measured at weeks 0, 8, 12 ]
    Two clinician-administered scales measuring level of change in (1) depressive symptoms and (2) IBS symptoms, assessed separately. Range is 1-7, ranging from very much improved (1) to very much worsened (7).
  • Visual Analogue Scales (VAS) [ Time Frame: Measured at weeks 0, 8, 12 ]
    Five self-report 11-point Likert scales measuring pain severity in the following domains (one item each): overall pain, pain interfering with daily activities, headaches, back pain, and shoulder pain. Range is 0-10; higher scores indicate higher pain severity.
  • Somatization Module of the Patient's Health Questionnaire (PHQ-15) [ Time Frame: Measured at weeks 0, 8, 12 ]
    Self-report 15-item scale measuring somatization symptoms (range 0-30); higher score indicates greater severity of somatization symptoms.
Original Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: December 18, 2012)

Brief Title  ICMJE Open Trial of Duloxetine in Outpatients With Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptoms and Co-Morbid Major Depression
Official Title  ICMJE Open Trial of Duloxetine in Outpatients With Irritable Bowel Syndrome Symptoms and Co-Morbid Major Depression
Brief Summary This study will evaluate the efficacy of duloxetine in reducing depressive symptoms, abdominal pain, and other symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IRS) in a population of outpatients with Major Depressive Disorder MDD and clinical symptoms of IBS.
Detailed Description

This study is a 12-week open trial to assess the efficacy of duloxetine (Cymbalta) for the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) symptoms and comorbid Major Depressive Disorder (MDD).

Participants will visit the clinic 8 times to meet with the psychiatrist. They will receive duloxetine to see if it helps their major depression and Irritable Bowel symptoms. Upon study completion at 12 weeks, they will receive an additional 3 months of free medication treatment at our clinic.
