    Use pharmaceutical probiotic

    I have IBS since for over 30 years. I have used over the counter diarrhea medication, and bentyl when necessary. I learned what foods caused me problems and avoid them unless I am at home or close to home. After a colonoscopy, several years ago nothing help. I started on 10mg of Lexapro and started using a pharmaceutical probiotic which has given me much relief. I can travel now and eat while on the road as well as visit other homes with not problems. Still have to watch too much sugar.
