Viberzi

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. Now, the price has gone up to $525.00 a month. I can’t afford that. I am on SS and Medicare. My wonderful doctor has been supplying me with free samples which is saving my life!… read more

Would Vibrezi help only with IBS D? I have diarrhea and constipation. As soon as I eat I fell gurgling in my stomach.

He put me on dicyclomine for about a month now. It has relieved some of my symptoms such as lower abdominal cramps and the feeling of having to use the restroom but didn't have to. But I feel like this medicine has given me new symptoms such a abdominal pains but higher now. Also, I can just hear my food digesting it's so loud. Has anyone else had… read more

Does Anyone Elses IBS Like To Flare Up At Night At Times.

Does Anyone Elses IBS Like To Flare Up At Night At Times.

Not every night but some nights my ibs likes to acted up. Like having to go to bathroom at least twice before bed. And sometimes I have nasuea with it. I wish my doctor would keep my refill of promethazine for nasuea going without having to go back and forth to the doctor office. We know I need it for ibs and my chronic migraines. So why must I keep coming back when it's the only nasuea medicine she can prescribe to me. All the others I have horrible side… read more
