It is not recommened for long term use in IBS
it actually constipates me but makes me itch all over - so I only take if back pain is so bad I cant stand it -
I was prescribed Tramadol for my back pain. Made me very ill. I know people who do fine with this drug, but others have told me it makes them very nauseous also. I'll never take it again.
It's a narcotic like drug called an opioid. Addictive.
I have interstitial cystitis too..so I take it for the pain.
