Hey mbx5-(assuming ur from CF site)....
I think this is a great thread to!
Not to promote drugs, but i can say that i am already a nervous flyer. My GI prescribes me xanax when i fly. I start taking Immodium and then i take 1/2 a xanax 30min prior to boarding. I do not eat anything that morning! Over the last 4-5 yrs (which is how long i have had uc) i have flown alot, 4-5 trips from miami/co, 1 trip miami/vegas, a few to the bahamas....I have never once had a problem on the flight usuing this regimine....As a pp mentioned, i also try to board last and hit the restroom right before boarding , which sometimes brings a little anexiety (what if i can't go, and then need to when i board, what if i start going and miss the plane, ect), but have not had either of those happen.
anyways, good luck!
