I need some advice. I am considering taking lotronex but I can't decide if it would be right for me. I would consider myself ibs-d but sometime after a really "explosive" attack I won't have to do anyhting for about a week. I don't get uncomfortable, I just don't have to go. It's the only good thing about a bad attack I feel safe for a few days.My doctor said she would go with the lotronex but I am not sure. Any advice out there?
