I am 18 years old & was diagnosed with IBS when I was 14. I lived my whole high school career on taking Imodium every morning and it seemed to help, sometimes, but by the 2nd semester senior year I had to go to the bathroom almost everyday in the morning. I recently just got put on Bentyl and Flagyl, but I think I am going to stop taking Bentyl, because I feel so sick whenever i take it & I can't tell it's helped to much. Now with me going off to college in a month and living in a dorm and sharing a bathroom with everyone, I really need to get this under control. It's got to the point where when I have to go, I have to go ASAP! I don't want to sit in class and that happens to me. Does anyone have any advice on how to make it better? plleaseee!
