    I get severe bouts of abdominal pain that makes me want to go to the ER (ibs). I asked the doctor if there was something I could take at home to stop the bouts of pain and I was prescribed this medication. It works!

    I have had IBS forever and have suffered terribly. This is the first time that a drug has worked for me. I take .125mg, one hour before lunch and dinner and have not noticed any bad side effects. I feel like I have my life back.

    I've been prescribed 0.375 mg twice a day for abdominal pain associated with IBS. I only take one pill a day though, because with two I get extreme dry mouth. I still have the occasional flare-up, but this medication has vastly improved my stomach pain.
