so, you eat gluten and wheat now? Did it help you with any particular symptoms to not eat them?

What medication were you put on? Please help!

Before officially diagnosed with IBS and following a gluten-free diet, I had eliminated the major IBS D episodes, the ones that feel like someone is kicking you in the gut repeatedly. For about 4 years, I was totally symptom-free, then after the birth of my second child, I began to have D and bloating/gas and periodic C. The really painful episodes were still religated to exactly 24hrs after consuming wheat. After diagnosis and 1 month on 25mg of Elavil, I can now eat wheat without the painful episodes. The big deal with the meds for me is that I tried Heather's diet while gluten-free and it was nearly impossible. All the GF breads at my local HFS list oil as the second ingredient. All my homebaked GF recipes had lots of fat. I tried to make several of the GF baked goods in the recipes section here, but they were all awful. Taking the meds allows me to follow Heather's diet and control the other symptoms.
