I have ibs-d, and I only take this when my cramping gets bad. Just one pill knocks it out and relaxes me and my colon. I can't take too many otherwise I'll have the opposite and be constipated. This is such a good drug.

After Upper GI series was prescribed Librax BID. Stopped the belly bloating, cramping, & heartburn. Allergic to normally prescribed med. Have been on 34yrs. But now on Medicare, FDA will not cover medication.

I was prescribed the generic version of this drug as well as Bentyl. I alternate which one I use - try to take this 1 at night because it is more likely to make me drowsy. Helps alleviate the cramping within 20 minutes. IBS is intermittent & I prefer taking a drug like that is used only when I'm symptomatic. Now that I'm on Medicare, I hope my insurance still pays for it.

I took this medicine 40 years ago and it stopped me from have surgery on my colon. About 4 years ago my colon start acting up again, so I asked my doctor for Librax, he said that's an old drug would you like to try whatever it was, I told him I wanted Librax, because I know it works.

Two years ago I had a crisis of IBS. With this medication the problems disappeared. Take the medicine for 1 month and since then never more.

It alleviates the muscle, and at times, shows no relief

I have been taking Librax 3-4x/day since 1989 and it has worked wonders for me. I don't know where I would be without it. It was prescribed to me by the Mayo Clinic in MN and it's a life saver.

I have been using this medication for 3 months, Initially, it worked wonders. The past several weeks, my cramps have returned still using this drug.

Comment from: Eunice 45-54 Female 1 to 6 months Patient Published: January 28

After 2 years of all kinds of tests and suggested medicines, I was diagnosed with IBS. This has been the only medicine (believe me, I tried several!) that has given me any relief. I don't have to worry about what I eat anymore. Haven't noticed any side affects.

Comment from: Midnight8 65-74 Female 10 years or more Patient Published: October 24

I have used generic Librax for nearly 10 years. I don't take it every day, just when my IBS acts up. It works great. But now that I am 65 and on a Medicare supplemental precription plan my insurance won't cover it and it is expensive--over $100 for a 90-day supply. I have tried several substitutes that the doctor recommended but none work as well. I don't understand why the insurance company won't pay for it. All they have to do is look at the number of pills I have used in a year and easily see that I am not addicted to it or abusing it....

ability to rest, irritable colon, very comforted with meds

Comment from: maryannb853 65-74 Female less than 1 month Patient Published: July 13

I have had IBS since the removal of my gallblader. I have tried everything . My Dr. finally put me on Librax and I think that it is going to be the right thing for me. I have only been on it for two weeks and it has helped slow down everything. The only draw back is, that my insurance doesn't pay for it. and it is costly, even in generic.
