What I worry about with any new drug that comes out, is what about the long term side effects? They can't predict how it will affect you in the long run until people have been on it for a long time to find out. It's great that new drugs are being developed to help fight IBS, but personally I prefer to take them as infrequently as possible. It's like choosing the lesser of 2 evils in some cases... whether the symptoms you're treating are worse than the side effects the medication has.Glad to hear something is working for you though
