I was using pepto bismol for a while to help control my diarrhea, and realized it was making things worse. I know there has been a lot of talk on here about the ingredients in pepto bismol and that being not great for ibs-ers. I switched to Imodium and when I have diarrhea I'll take one. It seems to make things worse and give me even more attacks throughout the day. I'm just realizing this pattern. I can't seem to find anything to help control my diarrhea and I just don't get it. I've tried pretty much everything and still it seems not to effect the diarrhea and attacks. Can't figure this awful thing out. Ugh!
