Hello I have suffered from IBS for 5 years now, have tried medication - meberverine, peppermint oil, tea, buscopan, homeopathic treatment and have realised that it has a close link with my emotions and i have gotten myself into a viscious circle and resort to taking small doses of immodium. However i do not want to be taking immodium as a saviour to a normal life and want to fix it myself (easier said than done)Has any one tried cognitive behavioural therapy? or hypnosis? I am thinking of giving it a try!!Also does any one know if there are problems with taking immodium frequently and long term?Its such an awful debilitating condition that just gets fobbed off by doctors Help people!!
