I have IBS for sometime now. What I am trying to figure out though is, I come down with a cold and the flu so easily it seems. I am wondering with the meds that I take to help me have a BM everyday, am I losing nutrients that help me stay healthy?I add a prescription powdered laxative to whatever I am drinking in the morning (excluding alcohol of course). Any information I receive back is so much appreciated. And thank you all for reading this.
