Re: Hope this information helps someone
Hi, Marie. I'm glad you found something that works for you. I hope it continues, because unfortunately, some "cures" work for awhile, and then IBS changes again, and you need to change your approach. I too take Elavil (25mg at bedtime) to help promote sleep and decrease pain related to fibromyalgia. Besides IBS, I also suffer from chronic aches and pains. To control my IBS which lately is under better control than it was 3-4 months ago, I also take Bentyl 20mg 2-4 times daily, as well as calcium supplements with every meal. So far, my IBS has been ok to deal with, but I know another flare-up will occur - it always does. Good luck to you in your IBS control.
