: Hey everyone, I'm 14 and I have IBS. I was just diagnosed with it about a month ago, but I've been having problems for about four years. I was taking Lotronex and it was helping, but my mom told me that they are recalling it because too many people are having side effects. If anyone finds out about any other pill that can help, please post a message.

: Thanks,

Hi Kim,
IBS symptoms are different for almost everyone. There is a standard but not many doctors go by it and label many digestive problems as IBS. If you have been taking Lotronex chances are you have diarrhea that is primarily caused by a connection between your mind and Gastro tract.Before Lotronex was introduced -- some GI Doctors gave a low dose of an anti-depressant such as Elavil or Paxil.I know very little about this treatment.

I am a big believer in taking Metamucil--a water soluble fiber that is a safe bulk stool forming agent that slows down the diarrhea.I think it's worth a try.
God Bless---Harry
