Hi I'm a 24 year old female with ibs-D but have never been sent for any tests apart from blood and stool samples. I suffer badly with morning diarrhoea every morning, bloating and sometimes cramps. So far I have been given a list of tablets to help : mebeverine, dicycloverine hydrochloride, buscopan, colpermin and codein, various shop bought prevention tablets and none of them helped. Have been taking 10mg amitriptyline at night and at first it was AMAZING I NEARLY CRIED WITH JOY until the third day on the tablets I had a very bad bout of Diarrhoea at work (4 times in 30 mins)
I tried taking 1 Imodium at night with the amitriptyline for the last 2 nights and it worked a little too well to the point I was constipated and bloated. Have given my body a rest from both tablets today and the diarrhoea is back with a vengeance.
Is there anything anyone has tried to help ease symptoms?
Have had ibs for two years and am starting to feel alone 😔
Has anyone tried the FODMAP diet and did it help?
