I have been prescribed colofac by my doctor to help with symptoms relating to ibs, ( nervous gut, urge to go when in crowded place like mass or wedding or at a one to one meeting, combination of c and d, excess wind/flatulence). Was told it is probably ibs and there's nothing can be done, just have to live with it and try manage it as best i can by trial and error. I'm only 35yrs. I have always seemed to have the wind/flatulence issue as far back as my childhood but the urge to go has started and increasingly got worse since I had my first child 6 years ago. Can anybody relate to similar and also has anybody tried colofac, did it help and we're there any side effects? Thanks in advance.
