    Hi Cindyj-

    I use Viberzi, together with Align. Can’t say I’ve noticed any side efffects, though also haven’t noticed any improvement of my symptoms while using it.

    Eric, I have noticed more stomach burning and have heard of pancreatic pain and infection.. my daughter is a pharmacist and warns me constantly of no alcohol , aspirin products or anything that can cause inflammation in stomach to liver/pancreas. Pain is especially bad after eating to bathroom .. I’m talking bent over pain ..and sweat pouring from your brow pain .. which is normal but seems more serve at times .. I also take Prevacid and anything they can give me for gas and gerds . I have been searching for anyone that uses this medicine.. it works I’m not running to restrooms but my tummy is full of rocks all the time haha .. no winning with this IBS and yet it’s not classified as a disease .. but a reasonable sickness

    Wow, completely lost the month of April ! Hate when I think of days lost I never get them back ! Now off vierberzi after a very painful bout and the worst kidney infection of my life . Can’t believe that the meds that got me thru some bad flares and worked fine for 13 months turned on me! Before I could blink I was so sick and couldn’t even pee ! Worst pain I’ve ever felt , I have been thru childbirth but this was double over and cry pain . But none the less we forge ahead

      Glad to have you back, Cindy! I’m so sorry the medication which once worked for you caused you so much grief! I hope you’re feeling a lot better now. Now that you’re off Viberzi, what methods have you been using to control your symptoms?

      Thanks!

    I am new here. I am so sorry to read of others pain, but I cannot tell you the comfort I feel in these descriptions! Nobody understands the horrible pain during an attack that I go through. Sweat pours out of my arms! I have had 3 children med free and I swear these are worse! I am allergic to anti inflammatory drugs so I cannot take any drugs. The only thing I can take is Imodium. If I can swallow the pill!

    I have ibs-d too.
    The cramps and pain I suffer until I empty my bowel is awful. I have to control my breathing. I have had this every day since the end of October 2017. It’s worn me down. I am now on an anti Candida diet as the nutritionist thinks I may have Candida. I’m willing to try anything. I’m so tired of the pain every single day.
