Hi to all--
I've had IBS-D....for many yrs.
When I was teaching (Mid 1980s-) my Dr--gave me an "Old Reliable"
Rx,....Librax. That really helped--(I emailed him this AM..& he called in Librax pres. for me..generic)
In the meantime--I have a new bottle of Pepopgest (Enteric coated peppermint oil...capsules...that are broken down in the small Intestine)
I had tried it last yr--during a "flare"...took it half an hour before meals....& it really seemed to help-!
My Gastro specialist (Head of the Dept--at the Hospital )- says it is very good & many of his IBS patients..."swear by it"...!
The peppermint oil...has very good "Anti spasmodic"...qualities--
Anyway...get back on this--
In the meantime--- darn those Big Pharma...companies..I am gonna
pick up the generic for Librax...tomorrow...BUT...it is NO LONGER COVERED by my Rx...Insurance !!!
Seems it is such an older Rx..& with all these new..."Meds" for IBS...that Big Pharma is putting out-- Librax (And the Generic) are rarely used---hence--the Pharmacist told me....the price went up...& the Ins companies..stopped covering it !
**ANYWAY---DO , please, get back, regarding the peppermint oil....(Again..I use Pepopgest )--Has anyone...had good results....in their battle with IBS-D...(Frequent Bowel Movements...cramping/gas etc)
Thanks..I am really looking forward to responses-!
