Welcome to the board,

Your experience is not unlike from many of us on the board. Here is another approach you might try. Over the past decade there has been clinical research done on the use of dietary approaches to manage IBS symptoms with good results. The FODMAP dietary approach has been clinically tested in the UK and Australia and large trials are about to begin the in the US. The clinical results show an improvement of 70-80% in IBS symptoms. You can read more about this approach in the first two links in my signature. The first link is to an overview article written by a dietitian and the second article is the original research article. Many of us on the board us Heather's diet in combination with the FODMAP diet to manage our symptoms with good results.

You might find that you will get more responses if you post your questions on the diet board. There is relatively little traffic on this board.
