I thought I had IBS for 5 years. Along with it I also had bad heartburn. It wasnt until my girlfriend pointed out that I go through Pepcid and rolaids like candy that I finally decided to see the doctor about the heartburn. He gave me Pantaloc 40mg. All I have to say is not only is my heartburn gone but also my symptoms of IBS. I had it bad to, I would never travel or go out to eat because of it. I think the drug which works to slow down the acid pumps in my stomach has made the difference. I now feel a movement coming on over an hour or so, not right this minute like before. I know what it's like to have the symptoms, so I wanted to post this message here so some of you could try it. Good luck everyone.
