Comment:
I have IBS-C (with constipation). Which is some of the worst. Because I used to have to suffer with extreme cramping pain for up to an hour before I was finally able to relieve myself. I mean I would be keeled over in pain, moaning, praying to God for help. My IBS is much better these days thanks to anti anxiety medicine. But the rare occasion where my painful cramps come back. This medicine ... Show Full Comment

I have been living with IBS all of my life. My very worst days, I could go to the bathroom 10 times a day easily. I just started taking this and I have to say that I have never felt better. If you are considering taking this, I would definitely recommend trying it out, at least.

When I have an IBS ATTACK I take diclocyclamine (for cramps) along with Mescopolam. Within 10 minutes the stomach quiteS itself and the liquid painful BM stops! Together these drugs allow me to function a fairly normal life (until the next attack). When taking mescopolam don’t take the whole pill. It’s a soft tablet and I just break off a third or less. That still works. If I take a whole one i ... Show Full Comment

I've been dealing with IBS for almost 10 years. Diagnosed for the first 5. I was first put on a low dose of dicylomine, it didn't stop any symptoms. I stopped taking the pills and was told it wasn't IBS - again. This past year with a new PCP she put me on a higher dose 4x daily. It works with the painful cramping but i do not have normal bowel movements or less bloating and gas. In add ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have used several other drugs that worked better but with Dr's changing all the time it is hard to get anything from just a primary care Dr. so you try and take what you can get and work with it. Librax was better but I was told it wasn't being made anymore. Even Bentyl used to help with pain and Librax with spasms. The dicyclomine helps some but not as much as some other options.
