Benzos and Gastric Issues

The Other Brain Also Deals With Many Woes  - an article by Harriet Brown - The connection between the brain in the head and the hidden but powerful one in the gut lies at the heart of many woes, physical and psychiatric.

'The Mechanisms of CCK related Stress Disorder' by S. Shipko M.D. This article appears to show that benzodiazepines are potent inhibitors of  cholecystokinin (CCK), which is the primary regulator of bile flow. Take away the benzodiazepine inhibition and bile flow can be excessive and present without food stimulus. Bile flow, in the absence of a food to mix with, is caustic and causes inflammation of the bowel and stomach. If this the case, it is not unusually to have a bilious stool - semi liquid, very caustic and burning or to be able to taste bile.
