    Okay the dr haven't dx me with IBS yet but I had been trying different things before going on this medication. However, I had been getting small headaches a lot and wasn't feeling good. Could be this from zelnorm? I am on this medication for three weeks.. How long will it takes to be regular again?

    on it a few years ago and I was fortunate that it really helped me alot...as I recall I had to be real consistent about taking it the right amount of time before eating for it to work though.

    I went off of it when I got pregnant as it wasn't safe for the baby, haven't gone back on it (baby is almost 1). I was doing pretty good w/out it, until recently, considering going back on it now.

    Good luck, check with your pharmacy about possible side affects.

    for the responses... I guess with my migraine, it might takes while for me to used to this medicine. I didn't know we have IBS board and will be checking at that.

    Again, thanks

    I have been on it for 2+ years now. Never had a problem of any side effects, other than the initial adjustment period, if that is what you want to call it LOL. I am glad that I read this board though, I did not realize it could lose it's effectiveness. I may need to go off it for a while and then go back on it to see if it improves. Thanks everyone!!
