KES very nicely summarized the listing of new drugs in the clinical trials stages on my earlier post about Alosetron:Alosetron (Glaxo Wellcome) Phase IIDarifenacin (Pfizer) Phase IIIDidodesine (Glaxo Wellcome) Phase IIIFedotazine Phase IIISP207266 (SmithKline Beecham)Phase IIIZamifenacine (Pfizer) Phase IIIMy questions for the group are:1. Is there any way to get a good handle on when any of these drugs will be released for prescribing by physicians to the general public?2. How can we get the results of these clinical trials - the reports, I mean.3. Is there any king of "clearinghouse" that makes some kind of comparison between the results? Something like, "XXX was most effective for reduction of urgency and bloating", "XXX was most effective on women", "XXX was most effective for...." - or would we just have to make up our own "matrix" from what we could glean from the study reports?I'm probably asking too much at this point, but that kind of data would help each of us evaluate what might be best to try, rather than being a kid in a candy store and just asking the Doctor to prescribe each until we find the right one.Just trying to take a reasonable approach to this.Thoughts?BJ

Hi BJ, Good Topic. MEDICATION. I havent heard about any of that. I use to take Donnatal when I was having alot of difficulty 2 years ago. I personally dont think trying all this meds is a great idea when i feel that most of us can probably do without. I dont know your situation but I do know that I Have had IBS_D with colitis for 17 years and have pretty much cured myself on my own. A little bit of research and just taking time for me worked. My best advise is todo the same. Sorry I coudnt help with the meds but just thought I would give you some strength to try to move on and get beyond the meds. Good luck BJ

Novartis also has another drug, which is competing with SP207266.Fedotozine appears to be a failure.1. Read Gasteronterolgy and Endoscopy News, a physician's magazine: available at any medical library. There is also a subscription service called Investigational Drugs, but I haven't seen it. Sometimes, study trials are published in the mainstream journals, though are usually independent of the actual companies trials.2. See answer to 1.3. Sometimes, a study will compare one drug to another and a such a study would probably appear in the journals.

Are there any drugs being tested to get rid of gas? I keep hearing about the drugs being tested for the D types and I'm real happy for them. But I need something to look forward to, I can't take this s--- anymore.
