Hey everyone I am thankful for being able to eat and have foods in my system without experiecing a bout of diarreha,it's been a good while since I've gone through it.I'm not saying it will never happen one can only hope lol.I've been able to eat foods and enjoy them and just savor every bite without after being done eating feeling the dreaded D occuring.I thought I'd mention a few of the medications that I'm on for my IBS hoping they will also help a few of you.I'm on Protonix for my acid reflux and it also helps for GERD,I take two different perscribed enzymes which are Pancrease or Lipase Lipase seems to help the best.Also I take the medication version of the over the counter gas reliever Gas-X called Samithicone I take one and a half of that before a every meal and it's working wonders.To not feel constipated I take colace before bed time 100MG working wonders it helps with the evacuating enough of your bms for the day.I will pray that this may help at least one of you  I pray I can be a blessing to someone,and I would stop taking Amitiza if  anyone is on it cause it causes more harm then good meaning you get the runs most of the time.
That is one of the side effects that I was experiencing without really knowing it was being on Amitiza that was causing me such agony.I pray this will really really help someone everyone's IBS is different but mines may be similar to yours and my treatment may somehow help.Well anyways I'm doing good today ate well no D even was able to have two chocolate cupcakes yum do you know I would never be able to enjoy eating two without taking a trip to the toilet.I thank God!!!!! the one above for this pleasure again,you all our always in my thoughts and prayers and wishing you as always good stomach and digestive health and you will!!! in Jesus name take care everyone till next post.Many many hugs and kisses and good thoughts your way God bless!

Oh JT I am sooo happy for you. I tried the Pancreatic enzymes and they helped with the bloating and some with the D but it came back. I really know how you feel. I have been on Savella for 2 months or so and I feel like a new person. I like you can eat and not lose it within a half hour. The best part is NOT feeling like you have to go ALL THE TIME yeah I did not expect this because I got the Savella for fibro but it has got me going ONCE A DAY> Every once in a while twice. Such relief! Im so glad you have found some relief. Now we need to do all we couldnt a few months ago. I went on a hayride without 8 immodium and praying and tensing up the whole tiime. It was so much fun. ENJOY ENJOY ENJOY :-)
