I haven't been here in awhile. My IBS-D has been under control for awhile with calcium.
But recently, I started weaning off of Toprol XL (a beta blocker). It was for hypertension, but my BP has been fine for awhile. The med has some undesireable side-effects, so I'm slowly coming off it. But.....(and maybe I'm over-reacting about this), it seems as though since then (5 days ago), my diarrhea has worsened and I'm getting alot of those old upper GI symptoms (bloating, burping, strange chest sensations). It makes me wonder if the beta blocker has kept things under control too. Has anyone else ever been on a beta blocker, and felt that it helped their IBS symptoms? Thanks!
