Hi everyone! I haven't been on the boards for quite sometime. I guess that was actually a good thing considering I was feeling pretty good for a few months. I have IBS-D and am taking Clipoxide (Librax). I just went to the dr a few weeks ago and told him that everything was ok. He basically told me that I will have good and bad spurts..which I already know. I asked him about these new IBS drugs...he stated they were not available yet. Then he mentioned something about testing me again for ??? I don't remember exactly what now..some type of scope again. (I had an endo and a colonoscopy over a yr ago...nothing was found.) Anyway..here I am on my third day out from work due to IBS again. Had a MAJOR attack Sunday...severe pains for about two hours....D finally arrived after an hour of pain. Now I feel like death. I haven't eaten right..which I can't afford to do since I am already very underweight. I am going to make an appointment to see a new gastro and get another opinion. I feel as if my gastro just isn't helping me much. What do you guys think? It has to be worth a try. Also, what does everyone do when they are having the severe cramping before the D. Sometimes mine only lasts a little while, however, when it goes on and on..the attack is much worse. I was on the floor in the bathroom from being so weak!! Any advice, suggestions would be appreciated..I'm depressed and lacking energy since I've been feeling lousy for about a week. Thanks!!!!

With your IBS-D, you should really try Lotronex!

If you're thinking of going to another gastro.. I think that's great. It's always wise to get a second opinion.
