I feel tired all the time even when I have enough sleep and/or coffee? I quit taking Bentyl that doctor prescribed a week ago but still feel tired especially after eating. I am a student and I get really depressed when I have to do homework. I feel useless.
I also found myself never getting a good morning run as it before IBS. Sometimes I had to stop because I put too much gas or I have to go to bathroom all the time. But today, I had 9 hrs of sleep and felt fine before I hit the gym. I had no.2 and got everything out of my system... and I was slightly hungry...I am usually like that before runnig. But the first 30 minutes of the run I had zero energy in my limps and I was just dragging on the track. Funny it seemed like I had more energy during the 2nd half hour. I started the run at 10:30. It seems like my body was busy trying to digest the food at the begining. But my stomach was quiet and peaceful at the begining! I don't recognize my body any more! Can any one help me?
What does your doctor say about the tiredness? Is there any other anti biotic that doesn't get you drowsy? If IBS is uncurable, do you even take medications at all?

I really think you should talk to your doctor about this. It could be a reaction to medication or something completely unrelated to your intestinal issues. I would definitely check in with the doctor.

Do you take a multi-vitamin? I was often lethargic and was catching every bug that went through town, when my doctor suggested I try a multi-vitamin. It got me to thinking about the medicine I'm on for my bile diarrhea and I did some research on the web. Turns out that long-term use of that medicine can cause deficiencies in certain fat-soluable vitamins, such as Vitamin A--which is directly linked with the immune system. I started taking a generic Centrum pill and stopped having so many problems. It was noticeable within a couple of days of starting it, actually.

Bowel problems, not just meds, can cause vitamin deficiencies because most vitamins are absorbed through the intestines. If they're not working right, you might not be getting your proper amount of vitamins through basic food consumption.

I also am very tired.  I could get 10 hours of sleep and I am dragging all day long.  I haven't been able to figure out what helps with this.  I also can no longer run!  My symptoms get worse with running.  I have started to bike, but my symptoms also get worse with this.  It seems like any cardio becomes a problem.

I don't take any meds - they haven't seemed to help.

I'm not sure if this is helpful, but you are not alone!  It is very frustrating!
