Pain control

Hi Marie,

I tried pinaverium (Dicetel) many years ago (20+ years ago). It's approved for use in about every country in the world except the US. I didn't find it very useful for diarrhea predominant IBS.

I have used peppermint oil. The product IBgard is a very potent peppermint capsule. I found it too strong and it made my stomach feel uncomfortable. I found that it didn't have much affect on my abdominal pain.

Oh, thanks, for your answer. My doctor also mentioned peppermint oil but wanted me to try pinaverium first. My pain happens after a BM. So I could be fine all day with no pain at all, have a BM later in the day, and immediately my stomach bloats and I have pain. Sheesh. Drives me crazy.
