I'm eating right. (Lots of fiber, fruits, veggies)
I'm working out just about every day.
I'm drinking a lot of water.
I'm taking my Amitiza (20mg) twice a day like i'm supposed to.
I'm also taking my Thyroid meds and adding some Benifiber to my diet.
I have been dealing with IBS for YEARS. I'm 23 years old and I have been having issues as far back as I can remember. I'd be constipated for months...and then out of no where I would have a horrible bout of Diarrhea that would last days. Then I would go to the restroom like normal for a week or so and then the cycle would begin again.
I thought I had found relief with Amitiza. It had been working wonders...then it quit working. So I upped my dose to 20mg twice a day. Now I'm wondering if I'm going to have to do it again. I have been doing some research and a lot of people who are taking Amitiza have been taking Miralax and I was wondering if I should do the same? What do you guys think?
I am open and welcome to any suggestions. Thank you :)
