  1. New report reveals that more than one-third of IBS Patients surveyed state it has been more challenging to manage their symptoms during the COVID-19 pandemic. Salix released a report of survey results that offers perspectives from U.S. adults living with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Entitled, Patient Perspectives: Living with IBS in a Pandemic, the report provides insights about the symptoms and behaviors of IBS patients over the past year (March 2020 – March 2021). Most notably, more than one-third (37%) of those surveyed acknowledge that the C
  2. I was prescribed Linzess for my IBS-related constipation, but after having read the possible side effects and the reported incidence, I am worried about taking it. Particularly because I am about to embark on a road trip. I would love to hear some first-hand feedback (positive and negative) from those of you who have taken it. Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
  3. First off, im gonna be very transparent and to the point, some strong language. Hi, first of, im a guy, im 20 now, my IBS and stomach issues as a whole started when i was 16 going through a very stresfull period for a few months. At first, my GP diagnosed it as just mild acute gastritis and got me on some pills. The stomach issues just keept getting worse, after a year i went to a gastrologist, got a an endoscopy which showed quite severe gastritis with an ulcer. They took a sample which showed presence of H pylori bacteria which was treated with antibiotics. As my gastritis r
  4. Hello! I am a university student, just finished my final year of Journalism studies, which has been odd considering the current situation. I suffer from IBS-C, and have done so for a while now. I went gluten and wheat free over a year ago and now have cut out any flour products completely. Recently my IBS has gotten so bad, not so much constipation since that is just tempermental, but just severe persistent bloating that will not go away. I have been diagnosed with IBS at the docs, but has been difficult to get any form of treatment since coronavirus situation... I have d
  5. I am looking for a quote to use in my presentation at the FDA as to what it is like for a patient to live with the burden of IBS-C (constipation). Would you please write a sentence about what your quality of life is like living with this? I'm only looking for a sentence although I know many of us could write a novel! I will not use any names or contact information. Thank you.
  6. Hi fellow sufferers. I googled IBS support group. I was looking for others who deal with symptoms I have. I don't have a formal diagnosis but I'm planning to see my Gastro doctor (who has done my colonoscopy and upper endoscopy in the past year.) He's very nice. I've messaged him often and he communicates well. SO I do plan to get some answers because I know gut issues can be a variety of things. I'm keeping a little pocket calendar with some notes on what happens each day to show him. I seem to go from constipated to then diarrhea and it's so unpredictable and frustrating. I will t
  7. What is the difference between IBS classifications? I see some people say they have different ones with letters after them, what does that mean? am very new at this so just learning, thanks
  8. We recently became aware of a delay that has occurred with the decision at the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) as to whether to re-approve Zelnorm (tegaserod) following the meeting of the FDA Gastrointestinal Drugs Advisory Committee to discuss the reintroduction of Zelnorm (tegaserod) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) and our testimony on October 17, 2018. On November 21, 2018 a Citizen Petition was submitted from Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P. C. to the FDA requesting that the FDA "refrain from approving any new drug application (NDA) supplement (5NDA) to allow
  9. I want to thank everyone again for their comments and support for my testimony at the FDA in Washington mid-October for two constipation medications namely Zelnorm and Prucalopride. The IBS Patient Support Group was the only patient voice at the meetings. While there was some excellent testimony by some doctors and medical associations, I was the only patient speaking about the patient perspective. My primary reason for going was not specifically to have drugs approved. Rather, it was for the FDA and industry reps to see that at the end of the day, a patient is looking for treatment optio

    New to this group

    Hi All, I'm new to this group, having just left another one that scared the hell out of me. I do have mental health issues, which I'm sure contribute to my daily struggles with IBS-C, and I do have a story, but will let you know for now I suffer from debilitating anxiety, equally debilitating IBS-C, have very little medical support, am on Constella (or Linzess, as it's know in the US), don't use stimulate laxatives, and am wondering what your views of long-term use of Constella happen to be? It's not classified as a laxative, and has no stimulant properties, and I've been on it f

  12. I just received an email from Jeffrey D. Roberts inviting me to this forum. I figured I'd take a second and set up an account to let everyone know that I'm so happy to report that my IBS (mostly diarrhea but sometimes alternating) has disappeared since I started taking this product called IBS Formula. After a friend's recommendation, I bought a bottle on Amazon over the summer. After just a few days of using the product, I was diarrhea free. It's around $26 on Amazon but now I get it autoshipped every month from ibsformula.com and it's $22/month. If you're still suffering it may be worth
