So I started Ibsrela this week. I don't hate it, but....I can't seem to get the dosage right. My doctor wanted me to take 1/2 pill in the morning with salt in the meal and it didn't work at all. 3/4 of a pill does not work. One pill works a little too well. Total liquid. It actually doesn't bother me except that it kicks in again in the afternoon after lunch or just happens. I don't see this as a long term option for when I need to be somewhere at a certain time.

If anyone has taken Ibsrela and can get it to work normally, please share, such as the timing, amount of sodium, etc.

I am actually glad to be trying this. I wish I had a sample pack of all the constipation meds available. Unfortunately with insurance you basically have to fail a medicine to get something approved. Zelnorm no longer available and Motegrity was uneventful to say the least.  My doctor actually likes this medicine so I want to give it a chance.

Hi Miki. I also used Zelnorm years ago. I have samples of IBSrela and Trulance. How is it going on IBSrela since November? Also, have you tried Trulance. I am starting that on Saturday nite, doc says that it may be something I only need to take every 3 days. I want to try Trulance first since it has bee aroung longer.
