Irritable Bowel Syndrome Diarrhea Predominant (IBS-D): Symptoms of Urgency, Abdominal Pain, Frequency, And A Fresh Look at Lotronex for Treatment

 Do you know someone who has to get up and go to the bathroom and poop as soon as they get done eating? Or maybe someone who feels like they need to be close to a bathroom at all times, just in case they might have diarrhea?

Maybe you have urgency, stomach cramps or that feeling of having to go to the bathroom again right after you just went. Are you suffering with irritable bowel syndrome(IBS)?

IBS affects more than 25-45 million people in the US. Worldwide, it is thought that 10-15% of the population may be affected with this disease. 

In this episode we hear from Joseph, Reilly, PharmD, from AntlantiCare in Pomona, New Jersey. He has spoken about IBS and how Lotronex can be considered as a first line therapy for patients with irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea predominance for years. 

Learn what the  symptoms and struggles of those suffering from IBS, what serotonin has to do with IBS, and how Alosetron/Lotronex can be used. Dr. Reilly also addresses the safety of the medication.
