ZELMAC is a new drug indicated for IBS-C that will hit the market as early as next month or October. This is the firt ever drug indicated for IBS-C and should be a block buster drug according to clinical trials. In addition to helping with constipation, it also seems to help abdominal pain and bloating associated with IBS-C. Ask your doctor when it will be available.------------------jg
