Hi Tim - sorry you're having such a tough time.

Here's everything that I've done to help my IBS-D:

1. Follow Heather's diet. (Of course )

2. Exercise in the morning. I find for me that if I exercise in the am, it 'gets things moving' and I usually can go with plenty of time, and not right as I'm going out the door. I have not been feeling quite right the past few weeks, and realized that I haven't kept up with my exercise since I was on vacation back in July. I think this is a big part, because when I got back into exercising back in February, I noticed a huge improvement in my IBS-D.

3. I take one calcium supplement a day for the binding effect of calcium.

4. Citrucel 2 T, 2x a day.

5. Levsinex (anti-spasmotic) prescribed by my doctor as needed.

6. Listened to the IBS Audio 100 program.

All that combined has helped me tremendously. Has helped with the D, urgency, and anxiety. I hope something there can help you too.

In the beginning of this year, I could barely stand the to drive to work, which only takes me about 7 minutes - I can't even imagine having to go through that on a train! Now, I almost never have problems going anywhere. I may still get a little nervous, but I can usually manage it and it goes away. I honestly can't remember the last time I didn't go somewhere, because I was afraid I was going to have an attack.

Oh - and I never heard of the problems of taking Imodium long-term. Maybe Heather or someone else will have some info on that for you.

Hope you find some relief soon.
