All right fellow sufferers. Here is the deal. IF you have not tried these two meds, do so, they may help a ton. LOTRONEX (it only helps me when I have severe D), but in clinical trials it helps the vast majority when taken dialy as medication maintenence. Also, try ELAVIL 50-75 MG at bedtime, it is a Trychiclide (spelling?) which means it will take 1-3 weeks to take effect, which has basically saved my career & IT IS THE #1 TREATMENT in CANADA for IBS. (Log on to the CMA Canadian Medical Association website for more info). YOUR DOCTER WILL SAY YOU ARE CRAZY & THERE IS NO LINK WITH ELAVIL and IBS, SO BRING YOUR CANADIAN MEDICAL BOARD PRINTOUT FROM THEIR WEBSITE! I swear this is the most BULLSHIT syndrome in the world (excuse my language), but I was sick for 9 months before they figured out what was wrong, I am a Psychologist, and I finally quit working for the last 3 months to try to get a grip! So if any of this helps, great. PS.......I found my own cure, not my Doctor! OH--My Doctor apologized last week for saying I was Crazy!
