.. I went to my Gastro Doc. today and he put me on Belladonna, Lidoderm for pain in my abdomen. Also put me on Lomotil 2 tabs two times a day, and a pro biotic. My stomach pain is so bad right now. Has anyone tried this for pain? I still am experiencing diarrhea up to 8 times daily plus I have to now where ladies pull ups! Please, I need to know if anyone was put on these meds, and if they were helpful? Thank You
The belladona should help the diarrhea along with the lomotil. The use of lidoderm for the stomach pain is interesting. I'll have to try it next time I have pain in my abdomin from ibs. You're going to have a dry mouth though. Both pills are drying. Don't over use either of them. They can be addicting if you make a habit of taking too many. The pills I mean.
Unfortunately not. I've had great success with Bentyl, or rather the generic version Dicyclomine, which controls the diarrhea and also helps the pain although that's not it's intended use. Years ago I used to take Bellergal, which is a derivative of belladonna, for migraine. It seemed to work well for that kind of pain. I truly hope you find the relief you're seeking.
I'm just curious have they tried the egg test w/ you where you eat a cup of eggs and they x ray you every I think 8 minutes? If not I would them too! It could be something totally different then IBS... Mine started w/ throwing up daily and diarrhea then I got on all these meds because I had a car accident that caused me neck pain too so I had to have neck surgery which now I have all sorts of things now so I'm on tons of meds which causes constipation and nausea but the Regland helps so I don't throw up daily. It was the only thing that helped. Just saying make them do more test.
