My doctor precribed this for me to treat my IBS. I found that this drug was helpful with making my stomach feel better, but after taking it for a while I found that the side effects just werent worth taking this precription.

Yes, this did help the discomfort of my IBS but in MY opinion, the side effects were just too much, its like, every side effect that is listed as a possibility, I had. Read More Read Less

This is the only medication which has treated my IBS. It was deemed ineffective by the FDA some 5-7 years ago and removed from the market. I'm told some 1-2 years ago it reappeared and your doctor may be unaware of this. It's marketed under the brand name of Donnatal ES but a generic is available. It's fantastic on IBS and because of the time release feature you do not get tired as you do with many other drugs in the same class. The only side effect I've noticed is altered taste, but this subsides over time.Read More Read Less
