    Even on days where my IBS is horrible, as soon as I have a drink or two, it goes away until the next day. Recently, I stopped at a liquor store at about 5:00 PM, and my IBS had been bad all day. The liquor company representatives each gave me a little less than a shot (3 total), and I never had...

    Hi all, I used to pretend to be OK and drink to appear normal at social/work parties until it came back to bite me in the behind. I am pretty sure alcohol is not healthy for the gut and drinking can definitely aggravate it multiplefold. So, do you still drink or have you let your friends and...
  3. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hello! My doctor just prescribed me Librax today for my IBS-D symptoms, and while I am quite excited to try it out, I am worried with the long list of interactions. Mainly, those concerning alcohol, caffeine, and Imodium. It says to avoid or try to limit the usage of these things when taking...

    Hi everyone! I'm 20 years old (soon to be 21!) and have been suffering IBS-D for 4 years. I've seen multiple doctors and specialists, had endoscopies and colonoscopies, only to be told that they don't know what is wrong and they will just put it down to IBS and I'll just have to learn to live...

    Hi folks, I found this site a couple weeks ago as I was doing research after some lengthy diarrhea (or loose stools). I am not sure if I have IBS. I just heard about this condition this month. I have never been "regular" but never really experienced stomach pain either, which seems to be a...
