Just thought I’d share this as after many years of suffering from ibs and Barrett’s oesophagus I have, with the help on my dr, found something that has helped me so much I’m beyond happiness. I started taking a low dose of amitriptylene in August of last year. My Dr suggested this as I’m a migraine sufferer too and she has had good results with it. I take a low dose (20mg) every evening around 8.30pm.
It’s helped beyond all expectations with my ibs. I have had one flare up since last summer and that was after a course of antibiotics. I know we are all different and what works for me may not work for you, but I thought I would share this. I never thought I would be able to escape the misery of ibs, it certainly has given me a life that I didn’t think was possible for me. It’s helped my headaches quite well too.
