Okay, my doctor prescribed Dicetel for me, which I have been taking for a week. He said it would take about 2 months to see if it would actually work. The problem is that I seem worse instead of better right now. Is this a common response, or maybe do I have a bug instead of just "normal" IBS? I do have a cold, and when one area of my body is affected, it goes right to my bowel. Plus, we are moving in two weeks, which is a LITTLE stressful. Any thoughts?
