I have a question is prune juice ok for IBS?

Google said that prune juice has sorbiol in it but i think it's wrong because i did some research at the store and it said it doesn't have sorbiol in it but plum juice does have sorbiol in it. So can anyone answer this question?

I drink prune juice to help with my IBS constipation. It works for me usually. Start off with a small glass and work up to a full cup

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!

The flu shots are now available at the doctors office and clinics
