Post zelnorm/lotronex, and other questions

firstly, i've never been diagnosed with ibs, but my mother had it, my grandmother, etc. and i have plenty of constipation problems, and have read up on mind/gut problems, and am positive that i have ibs and that it centers around that area. should i be diagnosed with this though, or are my assumptions probably right?

zelnorm and lotronex are two things i've heard about. the lotronex helps the mind be at ease, which in turn helps the mind/gut relationship a bit calmer; and the zelnorm apparently just jump starts dialisis, and makes bowel movements more normal. i know they are both only designed with women, but would it hurt if i tried either? i'm just curious as to what i should do. thanks.

Some ppl on this board have tried zelnorm.Its works for some and not for others.As for the lotronex i have a bottle sittng in my top bureau drawer.I never used it because i heard that some ppl were having problems with it .So i decided against using it.I saw somekind of medical directory about it causing problems.Kinda scared me so i did'nt use it.
