Viberzi

  • By Emily

    I have IBS-D but not ALL the time. My dr. gave me Viberzi samples but I’m afraid to try it bc I don’t have diarrhea every day. Is it still ok to take it even if you don’t D everyday? Has anyone tried it?

    I WANT to try Viberzi but the caregivers at the local clinic “don’t feel comfortable” prescribing it to me. Well news flash, I’m really uncomfortable with chronic IBS with diarrhea. Now who do I seek out?

      Hi GrammaSandy,

      I’m so sorry to hear about how uncomfortable you’ve been with your IBS. That must be really frustrating. Many people see gastroenterologists for care and management of IBS symptoms. Here’s an article talking a little more about what kind of doctors people seek out:

      I hope you find this helpful. Please keep us posted!

      Hi, I tried Viberzi but it didn’t work for me. I had stomach discomfort and still had diarrhea. My doctor put me on a cholesterol lowering drug when taken in smaller doses helps stop diarrhea. It’s called Welchol. It seems to be working! 2x a day but I’ve found once a day works for me. Your clinic may be “more comfortable” prescribing that for you. GOOD LUCK!!
