I rather eat 2 kiwi fruits. Not use Metamucil. I have tried phlox but that made me go toiler heaps every hour. Try and use natural foods, spices etc. As I don't know what they put into the pills we take
So many people do not understand our IBS Symptoms.
We have to teach them.
For it to help us.
In the past 15 years, I have tried Amitiza, Trulance, and Miralax. Seems to work at first, but then stops. I am currently trying Linzess, the maximum strength. Seems to work best if I take it a few days, then stop a few days, then start again. If I take it every day, it seems like my body becomes immune. When all else fails, I take 1-2 capfuls of Milk of Magnesia before bed, and it works the next day. I have to make sure I can stay home all that day, with no plans. It's terrible the things we have to go through, that just become a part of our life. It seems unfair. Why can't I be like others, that go every day, with no problems whatsoever? I've been dealing with this for over 30 years.
