IBS-D Help???

I have had IBS-D for 14 years and it has been the same thing, lots of bathroom trips! Ok well now I am having this unexplainable GAS issue. No matter what I eat I end up with GAS that is horifficly disgusting (sp). None of the OC stuff works so now what? Any suggestion?

  • Have you tried Benefiber? I know it sounds weird but I had HORRIBLE IBS after having my gall bladder removed. I tried all of that OTC stuff and even if it worked one way it killed me the other. I started taking Benefiber caplets just to take them and my symptoms started disappearing. I take one caplet a day and can eat whatever I want without making trips to the bathroom every 10 or 20 minutes.

  • Go see your GI doc. Sounds like it might be changing.

  • Dear Keyaziz:
    If you know that you have IBS, I would guess that you have a doctor. Why aren't you asking the doctor, and he should prescribe a prescription medication, such as Nexium or Tagamette (800mg,,NOT OTC!)?
    You also need a complete menu of what you CANNOT eat. I know from experience that gluten products are on it. No bread etc.
    Good Luck
