Hi, I'm new to this site, but I'm glad I found it. I have had IBS (D) for apr.2 years, I didn't do anything about it for the longest time, I guess I was afraid to, with having such a cancer history in my family.I sucked up the courage to see my doctor, had a colonoscopy and then had a sm.intestine follow through,THANKFULLY both were normal. I just had a lactose intolerance test done, and I'm not lactose intolerant either. I guess my IBS(D)is stress and food related. I find the medication (in Canada) Modulon Trimebutine Maleate 200mg 3x/day helps, but I really noticed an improvement when I also started taking Acidophilus with Bifidus capules 3x/day it's an all natural digestive aid, it is putting "good bacteria" into my stomach, and giving me the chance to get some nutrients out of my food, causing less "bad bacteria" to form which cause's bouts of (D). It is available in different strengths, I started out with 10 billion active cells per capsule and now I have found I can manage on 6 billion active cells. It's definetly helping me, I have had less bouts (D) or spasms and I am slowly expanding my "SAFE" food possibilities, which is great...more choices.Thanks for letting me ramble on...but I'm new to this. Have a good day !p.s. I know now I never should have waited that long to have it looked at by a doctor.
