Re: ibs-d, taking donnatal but am becoming constipated. help!
Hey Kira...Did your doctor tell you that you have IBS? It seems from what you have related, you don't have IBS at all. I have pain in my lower left quadrant and diarehea to go with it. My doctor put me on a regiment of meds, including 180 mgs of Methadone to slow the bowels and help with the pain. Even with that much of Meth, I still have the IBS-D, so I have to take Lomotil to help. I took Donnatal years ago, and the sedative it has is phenobarbital.
It sounds to me you don't have true Irritable Bowel, but maybe something else. I would question your doc, or maybe get a new one. Your colon is slowed down, way down. It sounds to me like it's slowed too much.
