Yes, I have been diagnosed with IBS too, for 5 years, I have taken
Librax and Levbid, and now I take Rantidiine, and the GI dr started me
on cytotec to try to stimulate the bowels. I had 5 senekot and 2 colace
last night, and a VERY small BM today, and they are getting thinner as
my drs had asked me. Not all the time but the past few times they are.
That I do not understand, but the pain was terrible all weekend, alittle
better today, at least tolerable.
I will try an extra senekot tonight, and hopefully go, I cannot go
without a laxative, and the longer I take them the more it worries me.
My husband is putting up a new aquarium to help me relax, hope it works.
