Welcome to the IBS forum!
What are your IBS symptoms? It might help us with the suggestions. Are you in any pain? Do you have lots of D?
The main prescript
ion drug for IBS is an antispasmodic - Bentyl (dicyclomine), as you mentioned. There's also Levsin. You might want to ask your doc about
another antispasmodic if Bentyl didn't work for you.
Also out there is Lotronex, which helps slow down the bowels.
Those are pretty much the only prescript
ions I can think of, specifically for IBS.
Some of your UC meds might actually help your IBS. Steroids (pred) have not so pleasant side affects, but help with inflammation. Ascol might also help as it treats inflammation of the intestines. I have no clue about
I can't even imagine having the trifecta you have. I used to have a lot of heartburn and my IBS symptoms... Those were hard enough to deal with. I feel for you.
Hopefully someone else will come along shortly who can add to this.
Best of luck with your doc.
