I'm new at this and I may have lost the first response. I've suffered w/IBS since my early thirties. Anxiety/tension were always the culprits. I remember my doc putting me on Zelnorm, but at that time the Food & Drug Admin gave it a bad rap, so I took myself off it. When my IBS flares up and my symtoms are severe w/spasms and unpredictable bouts of diarreha, I've found that the drug "levbid" helps me thru the worst of it. I stay on a very bland repitious diet of what I've learned to be my safe foods for a good while, until my bowel movements go back to normal. The levbid does give me dry mouth, nd its annoying, but I grin and bear it until the uncomfortable symtoms subside. I've had to stay on it for up to 9 days. My GI doc subscribes one every 12 hours. I wish you well.
