jt - I suspect this isn't go to be an overnight fix or cure. It will take time for your body to adjust to being off Amitiza? Try your very best to relax. I know I've mentioned several of my tactics or tricks, but one is to lie to myself, if I'm feeling awful I almost try to trick my mind into thinking, eh, I'm only slightly messed up. I'll feel better soon. Does it work? Sometimes yes it does. Especially if I'm away from home (traveling, on trips, etc.).
Hopefully someone will post about what it was like when they went off meds?
- Rectal Cancer 4/29/99, Stage I, no treatment necessary
(5 hour colon resection: 90% sigmoid removed, 15 inches of colon removed, gall bladder removed, temporary colostomy, reversed 8 weeks later)
- Chronic IBS/D symptoms, multiple bm's, on low residue diet
- Takes Colace 50 mg each evening
