I've had IBS-D for as long as I can remember. I was reading the bulletin board and saw one from LNAPE regarding taking Caltrate 600 Plus, so after going to two Gastroenterologists and a Naturopath, none which helped with their drugs and natural methods, I tried Caltrate 600 Plus and within two weeks my IBS-D was better. My husband and I just took an 18 day motorhome trip and thanks to LNAPE and Caltrate 600 Plus, I had a wonderful trip and only had about two - three IBS-D issues and that was because I ate something I shouldn't have. So even if you're taking Immodium and/or Pepto Bismol, I'm sure if you try Caltrate 600 Plus you'll find some much needed relief. I bought the chewable ones in the white and orange box, and they taste really good. I wish you all luck, and I feel so very lucky because of LNAPE.

This is my third day on calcium and so far so good! Well, I didn't go for the first two because I was still recovering from the last bout with Immodium, but today went and was afraid I'd start the D cycle over again, but had a very nice (Sorry, everyone) BM that actually hurt because it was so solid and it's been YEARS since I've had one that normal. So yes, so far so good, seriously, everybody should at least give this a try. Cheap and so far effective...

My first post at this great site...........I also wanted to say a big "thanks" to LNAPE for your advice. I started taking calcium carbonate with vitamin D just over a week ago, and it has been the best week BM-wise for me in the last 2 or 3 years.I've been on Paxil for the last few weeks, so I'm not sure if it's the drugs or the calcium or both, but it's kind of flukey that I started to feel so much better after taking the calcium. I will talk to my doctor to see what he thinks, it would be nice if the calcium did the trick all by itself.Thanks again LNAPE!!!!!!!!Chad.
