Thanks for the information concerning the inadvisability of combining Librax and Kava. I have a few more questions. Is Librax habit forming if taken for a 6 month period?
My doctor said to continue the 3-4 tabs daily and see him again in six months for a reevaluation. The Librax has been effective at relieving my pain (I don't have the typical cramping and *d* form of IBS--mainly just and aching pain in my lower adbdomen along with some constipation) and I do rest much better while taking it, but I'm a little concerned about the advisability of taking it for an extended period of time. Do the antidepressants also relieve the pain--do you find them to be as efective as Librax? Can the antidepressants be combined with the antispasmodic part of Librax? I also have some fibro symptoms--is this common with IBS, too? Sorry to be so wordy, but I trust your advice and don't want to take anything that might create problems for me in the long run.
Thanks again.
