    I've read the reviews regarding this drug, Lotronex. I too, have suffered with IBS/D for several years & for the past 5 years have been taking 1 mg p/day. While I am most grateful for having my life back (working, shopping, socializing, etc.), I have experienced an increase in the cost of the medication for the past 13 months. I live in IL & now pay $545.00 per month for 30 pills (I ... Show Full Comment

    I have suffered with IBS for over 25 years. Now I am taking Lotronex once a day and I feel that I can do almost anything that I could not do before I started to take this medication.

I am even back at school to get my BS in Health St ... Show Full Comment

    This medication needs "carefull" management by pts themselves. I was perscribed 0.5mg and told after a week, I could up the dose to 10mg. I take 1/4 to 1/2 of 0.5mg daily and it's a wonder drug. My IBS in 30yrs has never been so controled.

    I have had IBS for over 25 yrs. and this is a miracle drug. I am aware that there are some risks that come with this drug, but I am not willing at this time to give them up. Recently I have been diagnosed with colon ulcers, but my doctor assured me that it is not from taking Lotronex. I have researched it and I will continue with the drug. I have my life back again....
