was taken off the market years ago (cv issues) and my life has not been the same without it
There is nothing similar to Zelnorm in the market at the moment.
The link below has names of other medicines that can be used to treat irritable bowel syndrome.
I was on Zelnorm for 1+ year while it was on the market and it changed my life 100% for the better. Ever since it was recalled, I have failed to find a replacement and life is miserable again. However, my GI mentioned a drug called Resolor that you can buy in Canada or Europe (you will need a prescription from your U.S. doctor) that is supposed to be like Zelnorm, but based on my research, it has a host of severe side effects like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, severe headaches, leg pain, vision trouble, and even hair loss! I doubt I'll try it myself, given the side effects, but it might work for you. Good luck.
