I am on fiber, everyday, it doesn't help me go to the bathroom, it just makes it a little easier when I do. I was taking a laxative once a week (milk of magnesia did nothing for me) but I was afraid I would get hooked on it making it so easy for me to go potty.
I don't have a weight issue so that is a good thing (although we would all always love to lose 5 pounds) :)
Right now until next week I have the Zelnorm, and nexium and metamucil.
I have read a bit lately on the Amitiza and think I might ask about that.
Sadly enough there are no Gastro docs here where I live, closest one is almost 3 hours away. Hope fully we will be moving soon and that will put me in contact with another. My internal doc is really trying to help me though, he has been wonderful and has actually done more for me that my gastro doc where we used to live.
I have been on the Chrohns part, and it does give some good feedback, but like I said I am getting a little more out of this site, because I go along more with the IBS symptoms, I am just looking for help, insight and a few more suggestions on what you all take for IBS, as I said I was taking the Zelnorm and it worked TERRIFIC and now it's gone, so I was wondering what else you all might take, maybe me along with my doctor and you and your suggestions we can find me something else to try.
