To cut a long story short I was prescribed Codeine, Omeprazole and Lactulose. Do that all seem normal IBS? Any advice much appreciated x
Yes, ive been on codeine for years. Cant take omeprazole as it upsets my tummy even more
Thank you. Does the symptoms sound accurate? I can't believe how severe they are!
Oh yes, people think you have ibs get on with it. Really not that simple. Do you find certain things trigger it more?
I haven't a clue at the minute, this is the first one that's been bad. I may have had mini flares before and not realised maybe
Try keep a food diary over the next week as that can help you pin point things early on. The codeine will definetly help with the D side of it
I will thank you for your help. The problem is I've got c not d so the codeine seems to be helping pain but adding problems
Oh it will defo add to the problems. Buscopan or mebeverine usually help. Even try a cup of peppermint tea and a wee hot water bottle
i will thank you for all you help
Seems like a lot of medication at once. It might be difficult to find if one works better than the other. Maybe you should speak with your doctor. I'm on 20 mg omeprazole one a day...but alternate days
Well the Codeine is because I can't stand with the pain. The lactulose is because the Codeine bungs me up
