just fyi on the med list for ibs is says that the enteric coated peppermint oil is not available in the US. this is not true, it is available in health food stores. I have not tried it yet because my dr has me trying questran. i have some lotronex stashed in case. I am going to Europe for two weeks and do not intend to miss a day's venture. have been all over europe before and i know their bathrooms are hard to find and less than what our standards are. I had my gall bladder out in september anbd my dr thinks that the questran may offer releif because it has a side effect of constipation for those of us who have ibsd it could help. have not been taking it long enough to know yet. has anybody else tried questran???
