Hi, i am new to this board. i was dx with IBS about 12 years ago. Most of the time i have IBS-D and then occasionally IBS-C. I recently had a baby in november and after i got through my first trimester i never had one IBS symptom. It was great, i could eat anything i wanted and had reg BM. But my luck ran out as soon as i gave birth. My GI dr has me on Robinul 1 mg twice a day and Clonipin .25mg 1/2 per day. i am also supposed to take citrucel 3 times a day but have noticed that it makes me constipated so im scared to take it. it has been 7 days since my last BM. Last night i drank the max dose of MOM, but nothing yet. I have also taken 3 phillips soft gel stool softners. im in so much pain. i feel like i need to go but cant and my stomach is swelling more by the minute. i plan to take another dose of MOM when i get home from work. does anyone have other suggestions in case it does not work again. I am desperate! Please help!

As far as your clonopin goes, you are on .25mg 1/2 per day. Does this mean you are taking .25mg a day or half of that amount a day. I am curretnly on clonopin and take .25 to .5mg a day as needed for cramping. When I am really backed up, I take MOM as it does not cause me to cramp up. If I am really backed up, I will continue to take the max dose for a few days until I finally am able to go. Sometimes. the max dose does not work right away. Be patient and give it some time. Hope it helps.

Hi Dana,thanks for responding, It is nice to know that there are others out there who understand. As far as the clonipin, i am breaking the .25mg tablet in half. i take it every morning with 1mg of robinal. are you taking anything with the clonipin? the robinul seems to work ok ive only been on it for a little over a month, but is makes your mouth very dry. i drink tons of water. i took the other dose of MOM and i have started to have relief-thank god!
