Has Anyone Tried Peppermint Pills For Relief?

Has Anyone Tried Peppermint Pills For Relief?

Hello! I have just been recently diagnosed with ibs-d, and am still trying to figure things out. I’m not on medication yet, but am slowly learning what is triggering flare ups. My question is has anyone tried peppermint pills when you start to feel it coming on? Do they help at all? I always know when one is going to come, so I would like to lessen the effects until I can control it. Thank you!

A myIBSteam Member said:

Yes, I also have acid reflux along with my IBSD. I do think it is common for the two conditions to be related.
