I'm not exactly new here and I do have IBS, I'm just not in a flare lately and have
not been bothered by this problem for SEVEN years. When I did have it, it was the
(D) type that caused me much misery and a terrible case of agoraphobia.
I was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder at age 50. The psychiatrist said that
at my age I would only be able to take Adderal for one year. During that one year,
I got over IBS completely. I also got over my headaches. It was definitely an off-
label sort of thing to happen, but it happened.
I am now bothered by Chronic Pain. (You will notice that in my screen name. : ) )
Because of Chronic Pain, I am called upon to take Senokot-S for the constipation
that very often accompanies Opiod medication.
My problem: The manufacturers are no longer selling OTC Senokot-S. The pharmacist
said it was "Due to labeling problems." This medication has made my life tolerable
for YEARS. I've tried other laxatives.
I tried looking it up on the internet but couldn't find anything on it. I'm not very good
at find stuff on the internet but I'll go look again.
If you find out anything - anything at all, PLEASE POST. (Or you can e-mail me.
