I started using IBgard upon recommendation of my GI around a month ago. She thinks I have IBS in addition to UC. From what I understand, IBgard is basically just peppermint oil. It is suppose to act as antispasmodic. When I first started using it, it helped a lot. I had less cramping, bloating, and bms were perfectly formed. However, after using it for about a month I start noticing that it's losing its effectiveness. My symptoms are back to my usual - soft bms, gas and bloating. I am wondering whether the body somehow adjusts to this supplement and eventually stops responding. Does anyone on here have any experience with IBgard? Did it help you, and for how long?
It is a pity that it stopped working for me, as I thought I finally found a solution to my problems. I am planning to stop using it, and introduce it back in after a few weeks. Perhaps it would be more effective whe used sporadically.
