    I've been dealing with IBS for almost 10 years. Diagnosed for the first 5. I was first put on a low dose of dicylomine, it didn't stop any symptoms. I stopped taking the pills and was told it wasn't IBS - again. This past year with a new PCP she put me on a higher dose 4x daily. It works with the painful cramping but i do not have normal bowel movements or less bloating and gas. In add ... Show Full Comment

    I have used several other drugs that worked better but with Dr's changing all the time it is hard to get anything from just a primary care Dr. so you try and take what you can get and work with it. Librax was better but I was told it wasn't being made anymore. Even Bentyl used to help with pain and Librax with spasms. The dicyclomine helps some but not as much as some other options.

    I have dealt with IBS for almost 5 years now. I exercise regularly, eat a low fat, low carb, high protein diet and still suffered from IBS on a daily basis. I have also tried every over the counter medicine available for constipation, gas, and bloating. Going through a whole day without any stomach pain was a foreign feeling to me at this point. In addition, my bowel movements only occurred every ... Show Full Comment

    I was told by my doctor to take 4 times a day because the drug has to stay in your system at all times. After reading some reviews I'm unsure if I should take 4 a day before meals an one at bedtime. They are the directions I was given. Any advice?? I had to fill in the stars which are N/A to me yet. So disregard for now. Thanks, Lisa

    I was diaognosed with IBS-D 3 years ago. I only use this medication when I absolutely need it. I just finished a 10 day course of amoxicillin a couple of days ago. That antibiotic messed me up terribly. My IBS has kicked into full gear. Thank God I have this medication on hand - and they are still potent enough to take care of the pain, nausea and diarrhea. IBS sucks big time. But this medic ... Show Full Comment
