Has anybody’s gastroenterologist prescribed them Buspirone? This is what he prescribed to me after my colonoscopy and endoscopy came back clear. It’s an Anti-Anxiety medicine but it’s supposed to help with stomach cramps and stuff like that too, I guess. I’ve only been taking it for three nights and I do not like it, at all. I take it at 10 pm, and im usually asleep by 10:15 (it makes me very sleepy) and then around 2-3 am I wake up and don’t go back to sleep until around 7 which is when I need to be waking up. It’s very stressful and since it’s only my third time taking it I haven’t seen any progress with my stomach.

PLEASE ask for a test for Dysbiosis. In the meantime for some relief take all carbs out of your diet.
