hello I have just been diagnosed with having ibs d. Although I have suffered for years with abdominal pain and diarrhea this is the worst it has ever been. I have been prescribed amitriptyline 25mg and am not that keen to take them. The side affects seem horrendous and it also says no alchol and I do like a drink at weekends. (not much). I've tried just about everything from mebervine to buscopan which hasn't helped. I also have dilation of the gall bladder to the liver which causes pain after i've eaten.
