Thank you all with your replies. Appreciate it. Along with IBS-C, I have bipolar disorder so I see my psychiatrist every couple of months. I am on heavy dose of antidepressants. My bipolar disorder is in check. It's just that my IBS is pulling me down. Things were OK from Oct. last year to Feb this year as I was taking high dose of prucalopride aka Motegrity. All of a sudden it's effect slowed down from March. I asked my GI doc, all he said it happens. No reason. He prescribed me the same along with Lubiprostone aka amitizia which gave me severe pain so I stopped it. I now take prucalopride and herbal meds. So far herbal meds not effective. I did go for counseling but he was not great so I stopped. IBS really sucks and makes my mood go down. How long till I end my life. I have a question do harmful bacteria in the gut a reason for bad stools? I know about SIBO and have taken Rimaxafin course twice. Have any of you tried Kefir? If so did it help with your bowels. I just started 2 days back. The reviews are good. Hope it helps.

It is definitely brain-gut axis connection. Imbalance in gut microbiome too is a reason. Stress definitely a trigger. So I feel IBS both physical and psychological. I am really getting titedy of it. I just hope prucalopride starts working again. And Kefir is effective. If nothing works then suicide will!

So are you saying your daughter's constipation got CURED in 10 days? Yes I am desperate. So will it benefit me then? Any other medicine I can take for IBS-C? I am taking prucalopride 8mg daily which is a high dose. Am also taking Ayurveda (herbal) meds. Started one and a half month back, still not effective. Please help me. The longer this problem goes on the higher my suicide chances.

Thanks Kenny. I am already on Ayurvedic meds but effect has not taken yet. It's been one and a half month. My doc says just continue meds. It's frustrating. He has already given med for stress. I was doing yoga but lately erratic bcuz of bowel prob. I think my issue is anxiety. My psychiatrist has given anxiety med but I forget to take it. I have ordered coconut milk powder from Amazon. Delivery on Sunday. I will have to make milk for kefir. Have you tried Kefir?

Thanks. I had COMPLETE, FULL bowel movement this afternoon. I drank kefir at 10am. I prepared coconut milk from coconut powder. I think a wee bit too much powder, then I added kefir culture. The taste was little mild as I think more coconut milk. Is that OK?
