Can mebeverine cure IBS nausea? I've been having a lot of gas, burps and bowel movement, so I'm sure it's my IBS, but the nausea is the worst one.

Why is it whenever I have very little fiber in one day, it helps with my ibs, but isn't that unhealthy?

Why is it whenever I have very little fiber in one day, it helps with my ibs, but isn't that unhealthy?

On the contrary: Fiber is considered healthy. Average adult should consume about 20-30 gms fiber each day. It helps regulate the bms, makes it easier to go and helps against diverticulosis too. Constipation and diarrhea, commonly associated with ibs, both reapond well to fiber. I recommend taking it on a regular basis. ...Read more

Started Cymbalta (duloxetine) 60 mg one month ago. Now experiencing hypersomnolence & IBS sx (constipation 1 day, diarrhea the next). side effects?

Use peaches, pears, and prunes, eating the fruit and drinking the juice.
Plenty of water and perhaps Miralax (polyethylene glycol).
If you child has not been seen for this then get a check up first. ...Read more

If I had pain which localized to one particular spot and was tender to the touch, I would worry more about some sort of inflammatory process, perhaps appendicitis, diverticulitis, or other problems. If this persists, you should get it checked out. Good luck. ...Read more
