Hi, I'm new here. I have severe pain every morning. It's really driving me crazy!!! I eat very little, no hamburgers or pizza. A bland diet, yuck!!! Went to another GI doc Wed. He prescribed Librax. Has anyone tried it for IBS? Does it work? I'd give anything to wake up & not be doubled over in pain every day!!!!Thanks!!!Dylan

i've been taking librax for quite a few years. i only use it occasionally--not every day. i get pain from spasms and librax is my go-to med for those days when the pain is extremely severe and my heating pad, relaxation techniques etc don't resolve it. librax works quite well for me and really takes care of the pain and the spasm---such a blessing!i have chronic constipation so that is why i don't take librax more often because constipation can be a side effect and i sure don't want to make it any worse---lol..good luck--hope it helps you!

these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.

Hi ,I am new here also. Just found this website. I have been on Librax for about 17 years . It as helped me a lot. At first I took it 4 [email protected] day

then down to 3 times a day. then to 2 x a day. It really helps if you r a IBS w D. It will make you sleepy due to it  slow down the digestion system. But I still  can use it upto 4 times a day. Somedays  I do. Those days I sleep....... Good Luck !
