    Well, went to GP yesterday and was dx with IBS and started on Zelnorm 6mg twice daily.. Well, I took one with my nightly routine of medication arsenal.. about five minutes later (mind you I have felt a little strange all day but chalked it up to fibro) my belly is just growling. I knew it hadn't been long enough to start working.. Honey Ron comes from bathroom where I assumed (keyword) he was taking a bath.. He had diarrhea and informed me of it... said he had it all day.. I am thinking in my mind (crap, why couldn't I have known this info earlier).. My stomach roared so load he could hear it!! Needless to say I have been on the john every since that moment..... afraid to take the med today..... maybe again in a few....

    When I first started taking it..yes it cleaned me out good and when it does it cleans out the ole mucus and all. I have a reg good bowel movement every morn now and it cleans me out good and I dont bloat like I used to. I love the stuff. Yes it does stink also but its cleaning ya out good.

    I do take it twice a day. Before I eat breakfast and before I eat supper. I know this may sound gross but I do fill the tolit pretty good in the morning but I feel so much better afterwards.

    That on this board you can even find people to talk about bm's with you......
    I know that if I was near a county engineer sometimes he would probably cover me with lyme....
