I am only 2 days new this message board and I absolutely love it. The replys are heartwarming and helpful. It is nice to know that so many people are helping each other out the best they can. I have c-ibs & fortunetly for me have never had D with it. It was suggested to me to try caltrate. I was wondering before I rush out to buy it, Is this used for c too. Everyone that has suggested it to me has D-ibs. Also what exactly is it and what does it do for the people that have tried it?Thank a bunchPam

Pam,I can't recommend the caltrate for constipation it can only make it worse. A magnesium supplement may be helpful but I would start very slow with that because it can surely put you on the pot.Linda
