Click on the banner at the bottom of this page - the one with the big sunflower.I use Ibsacol, so do lots of others. I don't recall seeing anyone say "I have used it for over a month & it doesn't work", so I guess it's pretty good. It does take a while to start working - about a month for me.Try doing a search on Ibsacol in the ibsgroup archives & you'll find lots of info.

I used it for six weeks and it did absolutely nothing for me but lower my bank account. 'Course if you're as desperate as I am about feeling better you may want to give it a try. I've tried almost everything with low results except for tincture opium. Tincture opium really works as long as you're IBS-D.

Hi Bellyknot,Yes, I am in the US! (I really loved that question!) I live in the Bay Area. What tincture opium does is slow your system down so you're not constantly running to the bathroom (or just staying there).I started on .6cc's four times a day. It tastes awful so I mix it with diet root beer. Your doctor will need to write the prescription in triplicate (it is a controlled substance). And you'll get plenty of stares trying to fill the prescription.Tincture opium is an old idea so most people have never heard. Which means most pharmacy's don't have it on hand so they'll have to order it for you. I happened to find a great new pharmacy due to this snag!I hope this is helpful!LouLou
