Re: severe gas

Well as you can tell from this website you are not alone. I too have terrible IBS with diarrhea. I have taken Levisen & Bentyl, which didn't help. Now I'm trying an over-the-counter drug called Equilactin. It helps to bulk up my stools so I don't need to rush to the bathroom within seconds!! I'm also going to try Caltrate 600 since everyone on here is trying that. Hope I have been of some help. Let me know if you find anything that helps!!

Re: severe gas

I too was experiencing excessive gas but it was lower and in the intestines. It was very painful and embarrassing. The only thing that is helping me is Citrucel. I drink two to three glasses of it a day and have regular bowel movements and no gas. Try may work for you as well.
