Viberzi
A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

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… read more

I just wanted to add that Viberzi worked for the first few days and I thought we had the answer for my IBS-D. I ended in the hospital for 8 days with pancreatitis. It was awful.

Lomotil Can't Get It In UK
A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

Lomtil or Co Phenodrone is the only thing that really helps bad IBS Day days, but it is no longer available in the UK. Loperamide is not enough on bad days and although Codeine helps I don't want to use it during the day or become dependent on it . Any suggestions?

A myIBSteam Member

I'd used lomotil on and off for many years. It does make me feel sick sometimes but that's not the norm. It's a wonder for me

. Most Days If I Dont Take Immodium At Night For The First Hour I Can Go To The Toilet Up To 7 Times Does Anyone Have This Problem.
A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

First thing in the morning if I don't take immodium at night I can go to the loo up to 7 times in the first hour. My doctor reckons this part of the IBS but when your staying at someone's house with only one bathroom it gets a bit embarrassing also we travel a lot and that is the same when your back and for the washroom. Has anyone else experienced this and can they tell me how to cope.
