Hi guys,
My GI is going to prescribe Lotronex to try to control my diarrhea...he thinks now that I may have severe IBS-d in addition to my Crohn's/ UC. I was reading about Lotronex and saw that it said not to take it if you have Crohn's or colitis...I trust my dr but that makes me nervous. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience here?  Thank you so much in advance.

Never heard of that medicine. Maybe you can pop over to the IBS forum and ask them about it? Good luck!
