Posted by missyalora52 @missyalora52, Jul 19, 2022

Does anyone know of a medication to relieve symptoms of IBS?

I am very interested to know how you cured IBS. Rsacker

Welcome @rsacker and @missyalora52
Rsacker, I moved your question to this discussion to this new IBS conversation in the Digestive Health group. You posted to an old discussion that looked to be spam. We recommend not sharing your personal email on a public forum, but rather to do so using the secure private messaging.

I'll point out however that by sharing here in the forum both you and missyalora can learn from many members like @rodeo2step @livefully @grandmajan @cahnny @linn1 @thull @jackiem95 and more about managing IBS and what works for them.

While we wait for others to chime in, you may also be interested in reading this expert blog:

Do you have IBS-D or IBS-C? Have you heard of the FODMAP diet?

@rsacker indicated that someone cured IBS? Is this possible? I have IBS-D and it has changed my entire life – and not for the better.

I did NOT cure IBS, but I read a message that said they did. I will look for it. Sorry

I realize now that I was moved from an “old” site to here. The message I read was on the old site. I am new so forgive me for the lack of jargon

no worries. I got excited there for a minute.

I don't think there is a cure for any digestive issues. They all make life diffucult. Meds help in some instances but sometimes cause more issues.

I agree, I have collagenous colitis and it has changed my life. I have lost 60 lbs and turned into almost a recluse. I’m on infusion therapy now and feeling a lot better, hope it continues to work.

@sonnie27 and @rsacker, I can imagine the excitement that the promise of cure generates. Unfortunately the post that proclaimed to be a patient with IBS who found a cure was spam. It’s so important to be hypervigilant about the things posted on the internet including on discussion forums. If it looks too good to be true, it often is. I’m thankful that @rsacker found the old post from 2012 so that it could be removed and this community to be kept safe from misinformation and spam.

@sonnie27 @rsacker @kaylasills @carolyne what are your triggers and how do you avoid them?

I just thus week started Alosetron that my gastroenterologist prescribed. It is very expensive so I only got 14 days worth. I’m not sure yet if it will work or not. It is for IBS with diarrhea. Check it out.
