It is the first time I write in this group. I was diagnosed with IBS like 12 years ago. I do no get constipated, but I do get diarrhea almost every single day. I also get cramps when I need to go to the bathroom. This condition makes it hard to have a normal life because i always have to worry about bathrooms being available. I do work from home but if I need to go out for a few hours I need to take pepto bismol and imodium so I can be okay. I also take probiotics at night (accuflora but I think it has been discontinued ). How do you manage the constant diarrhea? Do you take meds? Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you!
Im not a medical doctor nor do i have IBS, but have a good very friend Len , who has IBS ( stomach cramping in the mornings , watery stools and running to the bathroom after eating meals , especially greasy foods -). He uses Florastor and mentions he has a lot of luck with it . He says its the only probotic hes found that works for him. I think the Florastor only contains one strain called "Saccharomyces boulardii " which is actually a good beneficial yeast . Have you had any luck with this product ?
Cheers and Good luck ,
