I would urge you to talk to your Dr about how you are feeling depressed. You might need to treat that depression as well and some antidepressants have been known to help with IBS pain. Talk to your Doctor about this.All the best

Hopeforcure, how many probiotic pills do you take a day?BQ I've been on several antidepressants and I just don't get how it can help IBS as it does not for me but just helping with anxiety.

Natalie, I am so sorry that you have to go through all of this. Reading your story is like reading mine. I too have multiple allergies to meds, antibiotics(oral) impossible for me. I too had stomach surgery with removal of some of my intestines etc. I've missed so many special moments beacause of uncontrollable diarrhea,stomach cramps and pain.I've tried so many meds, I just tried a new one last weekend at the request of my gastro doc. It was called Xifaxan. After only two doses(one 2x day)I had a bad allergic response. That was really frustrating but I know I have to remain open to options. I'm trying a vitamin regimen suggested by someone here on the site.Some of them I can Take and some I just can't tolerate. You might ask your doc about Questran and see what he thinks. There are many meds and natural ways to try to help yourself but, the key really is your frame of mind. Believe me this is one of the most frustrating conditions to figure it out but, you will. This site is a great start but I urge you to share with your doctor the toll this condition is taking on your emotional well being. I'm not working right now due to my IBS along with some other health issues many like some things you are describing. Please contact your doctor and have a VERY open discussion about how your feeling. I'm also trying the Hypnotherapy(it helps me to learn relaxation techniques I use them through the day and always listen to them at night.) You can't fight this all alone and you don't have to. This is a great site with lots of people who understand and care. I'll be here if you need me. Wishes for strength and courage to you! WISHES
