  • A great tx for that happens to be, believe it or not, SSRI's. seratonin works on the bowels, as well. Has she tried that?

    Other than that, there is an IBS diet, some people have to avoid nuts, raw fruits and veggies, or too much fat.

    Hope she feels better soon.

  • There is really nothing for it......I also have that. I have had it for years and there is still nothing. She could try pills from the doc, but they did not help me.
