I am a 20 year old female and was diagnosed with IBS in March. I too thought I was lactose intolerant.
I have been to many doctors over the past 5 years. Every doctor told me to take fiber and to reduce
stress - which did not help. Finally, in March, my new doctor prescribed hyoscyamine (generic
for levsinex). The drug has some side effects at first (dry mouth, fatigue), but overall the medication is great. I feel very
comfortable and happy now.

: I AM A 36 YEAR OLD FEMALE AND HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS PROBLEM FOR OVER 10
: YEARS NOW. I FIGURED OUT ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO THAT I WAS LACTOSE INTOLERANT SO
: I KNOW TO AVOID MY "TRIGGER FOODS". BUT IN THE LAST 2 YEARS MY DIARRHEA HAS
: BECOME TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL. I CAN'T GO OUT TO EAT WITH OTHER PEOPLE BECAUSE
: OFTEN WITHIN MINUTES OF EATING I'M RUNNING TO THE BATHROOM. IF I EAT VERY SMALL
: AMOUNTS I DON'T SEEM TO HAVE AS MUCH DIFFICULTY, BUT IF I EAT ANYWHERE NEAR TO
: BEING FULL I'M EXPLODING FOR HOURS. I AM ABOUT 15 POUNDS UNDERWEIGHT, SO IT'S NOT
: FROM OVEREATING. I HAD A COLONOSCOPY A YEAR AGO AND THE DOCTOR SAID EVERYTHING
: WAS JUST FINE, "IT'S JUST STRESS". HE PRESCRIBED 1 TBLS. OF CITURCIL BEFORE BED, AND
: 8 TABLETS OF EQUALACTIN DAILY. I AM JUST GOING TO START ON THESE, BUT AM
: CONCERNED BECAUSE THE EQUALACTIN BOX SAYS TO ONLY TAKE THIS DOSAGE FOR 2 DAYS?
: THE DOCTOR MADE ME FEEL LIKE IT'S "ALL IN MY HEAD", IS IT OR IS THIS IBS? ANY ADVICE
: WOULD BE APPRECIATED. I'M DESPERATE FOR HELP! (P.S.I'VE TRIED TRACKING THE VARIOUS
: FOODS I EAT AND CAN'T SEEM TO FIND ANY CORALATION TO WHAT I EAT AND THE DIARRHEA).
: THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
