Viberzi

Since I was prescribed Viberzi about a year ago, my life has been so much better. It works for me almost 100% of the time. I love it. I can go to the mall, to a restaurant and have almost no problems. It’s the best med that has worked for me. At first it wasn’t covered by my insurance but I was given a discount so it was doable.

SIBO - Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth

Has anyone else been diagnosed with SIBO? I've rarely seen it mention when researching IBS, but the new doctor I went to yesterday suggested a modified fodmap diet that eliminates additional foods to address it.

Weight Gain? Has Anyone Experienced This Even If You Can Barely Eat?

I know personally I retain a lot of fluid during my flare ups. But I've gained and I really don't eat much when I do. I've gain up to 20lbs being sick and all I can do is sleep through it.

A myIBSteam Member

I gained weight after my Dr. put me on amytriptoline. Before that I lost 40 lbs. without trying. This drug doesn’t seem to help so I might go off it. I’m seeing my Dr. tomorrow.
