I was wondering if there was a Dr. on this board that could answer a quick question. I have had IBS-D for about 7 years now (I am 25) and about a year ago started taking hydro 10/325 (one) a night to help with the discomfort I felt in the evenings. I discovered it helped by getting a prescription after childbirth. Anyways...I have been to embarassed to ask my Dr. for the prescription because I was afraid he'd autimatically assume I was an addict (mainly because I'm young). I have been getting them online with my records through phone consults. I ran out about 7 days ago and had no symptoms untill about two days ago when I started going D about every 1-3 hours. My question is this...the meds really kept me normal in the whole eliminating dept. (due to the constipating effect) so I don't know if this is a withdrawel symptom or what my bowels would normally be like without the hydro? Thanks for your help. I was going to see how I was without them, but so far...not so good!
