That would be me! I wouldn't touch the stuff. When I was first diagnosed with IBS 20 years ago, it was mostly D. But over the years I have experienced severe C as well. Having known both conditions, I will take D any day. It's really just the flip side of excessive laxative use for those who suffer with C. The damage I have wrought on my system with laxatives is incalculable. And you can't hide it because it shows up in the coloscopy! While it gets tricky trying to manage all these arbitrary symptoms, I believe most chemical preparations, when taken over a period of time, do terrible damage to our fragile symptoms.
Just my little opinion!
