I have read a lot about Questran recently and wonder whether people have had it from their GPS or only through a specialist?
My GP is very disinterested and just tells me to use loperamide bought over the counter, despite this being of limited help. I have had daily D for 5 years, usually 5-10 episodes before 8am every day and more irregular bouts during the day and night. I'm exhausted, frequently nauseous and feeling very low.I don't have flare ups, every day is the same. A previous doctor prescribed amitryptiline which worked for a while and I had mebeverine to no effect. I have a very plain diet, excluding all the common triggers but this does not help. I do yoga and exercise every day to manage stress. I feel I am really trying to help myself.
I am nervous about asking about Questran since I don't think he takes IBS seriously and I don't know if GPs prescribe it much anyway. I have never been referred on or had investigation other than a blood test, so I am trying to come up with new ideas. I would be really grateful to know of other people's experience.
Thanks very much
