My daughter and I both have been put on Zelnorm for IBS-C.
We have been using myralax, flax oil and aloe vera. Were doing okay having bms, but a little bloated most of the time and cramps. Thats why the doc put us on Zelnorm. And it is much easy to deal with than the myralax.

The zelnorm seems to work very well for both of us as far as no cramps, no bloating and the urge to have a bm every day. But the bms have turned rather hard. Alot of effort to pass. (sorry) Should we go back on the flax oil and aloe vera to help this.

Re: Zelnorm

Hi, I tried Zelnorm as well.....except it didn't work for me. Seems like you've had a lot more luck than I have. Anywho, the hard bm thing....I get like attacks of those. Except it takes so much effort that I'm SOOO sore the next few days....and I'm so sore it's painful. There was one night where I couldn't sleep at all!! I was in pain all night. If anyone finds ANYTHING that helps with that....please let me know! So Kaye2003 there's not much more about Zelnorm and all that I can tell you, but don't feel bad about the hard bms...I feel you!
