Hi Karybear (cute name),Have you done much reading here? There are a lot of good suggestions for living with IBS. I'd rather NOT live with it, rather eliminate it, but we'll see.....I don't know anything about Zelnorm, but if you do a search on this site, you'll find a lot of posts. Some people have improved with it, some not. See how you fit it.Good luck! Ask a lot of questions, there are a lot of answers!
