Hi,I am seeing my GI Md for the first time in a long time....(appt on friday)I have just in the past been seeing my internist (who doesnt know his head from his behind)due to hassles with insurance...long story)I would like to try librax(I have tried everything else-I am seeking advice from alll you knowledgeable people on this board,re whattype of questions to ask,etc.I also need to know-are MDs ever hesitant to give you librax since is is a controlled med?I have tried bentyl,levsin,am currently doing mikes tapes(this is the one thing that has helped some so far!)have drastically changed my diet,done acupuncture....the list goes on.I am very nervous re going to this appt because i am afraid he will say"you just have to live with it" or"wait until Zelnorm or Lotronex comes back on the market!!Of course,being nervous about the appt makes my ibs worse...At least he is the MD that did a colonoscopy on me several years ago,when I was in the hospital for 4 days with severe abd pain...he commented that I had the most spastic colon he had ever seen.they did rule out other conditions with other tests...Sorry this post is so long,I would appreciate any advice!Thanks.Beth

Beth, keep up the good diet and tapes, they will surely help some. Knowing your history this MD should have no problem Rx-ing you some Librax. Librax is a milder benzo with an antispasmodic added especially to treat IBS/D spasms and it may help you some until something better comes along. Good luck, Norb[This message has been edited by norbert46 (edited 09-26-2001).]

Eric-thanks for your post.I am on day 40 as of today,with Mikes tapes..I think they are great!I think I am in the "downswing" phase....I really feel overall I am improving ,both IBS sx and anxiety,from 40 days ago when I started.But past 2 weeks I have really had increased sx...to my understanding this is normal,and that as I continue with the tapes, I should improve.Took a while to get this way,will take a while to improve!BTW I will check out the CBT/Hypno section of the board more...to add to the mix I was just dx also with fibro this week(not a suprise by any means)take care,Beth
