Hello Woody, and welcome to the Board! Congratulations on your Lotronex prescription. You'll have to keep us updated on how you do with it. I alternate between C and D, do I won't be using it.As for trigger foods, we all have different ones, so it's hard to say. I know milk products give me gas, and if I eat a very fatty meal I tend to get D. But I'm still new at IBS, only a year, and I haven't really sat down to figure out precisely what my triggers are. I guess I like food too much.
And, I don't suffer as much as some others do.I'm sure you'll hear from other people on their triggers though, and get good ideas on how to cope.JeanG------------------Member of "The Advance Guard for the Ozone Rangers".May the "farce" be with you. JeanG

Woody,Welcome to the board......I am a 71 yr. old female with IBS-D, which I have had at least 4 years.I was diagnosed with Spastic Colon years before, which I understand is now called IBS.I also have to avoid milk. Some other things that seemed to have helped me:Avoid:Hot, spicy foodsStressGreasy foodsCabbage, brocolliI also find eating smaller meals, but more often, seems to help..... It really is a matter of finding what works (or doesn't) for you.Hoping to hear how the Lotronex (sp) helps you.....------------------LET'S ALL PRAY FOR A CURE TO THIS IBS SOON!BETTIE

Hi Woody
Welcome to Jeff's place...We can all empathize with your feelings.Having had ibs for 9 yrs now, its been an emotional/physical tumultuous ride. ibs is notorious for its "moodiness". Sometimes without particular provocation, it can exacerbate, tho I can often associate mine with a bad diet &/or severe stress or depression. Perhaps either or both factor(s) contributed to your recent flareup?I havent been able to get my hands on Lotronex yet, wish the best for you and those who are experimenting
Keep us informed Woody & all.Im with Sweet Bettie on most of my dietary ibs triggers
. The severity "trigger" level in order of intensity are:1) GREASE!2) HARD/Tough meats3) Dairy + Heavy Creamy foods4) Hot Spicy foods (its a GOOD thing I never enjoyed this, otherwise I'd be in tears of deprivation)Hope you feel better. To Everyone also
