#4 Martin21 Posted Advertisement It seems that my doc is not exactly sure that I have IBS and thinks I my have a dysbiosis of the gut- that is to say that an infection disturbed the balance in there and that is causing irritation and.So- he thought that the LowDose Naltrexone would strengthen the immune system to fightthings off and it's anti-inflammatory properties would also reduce the inflammation in the gut wall at the same time. Did the usual- after the Dia first thing in the morning took a couple immodium then was locked up for the rest of the day and often the next, then the cycle would continue.
Had a stool test for C-diff but came back negative. At this point I retooled my career and started working from home. I worked on removing stress from my life, listened to the IBS Audio 100 program, eventually went to a hypnotherapist and worked on.Its so crazy that there isnt more research being done to get to the bottom of this. Any thoughts anyone may have would be greatly appreciated. #7 idkwia Posted Advertisement. Martin21 - well I am not a doctor but there is a strong possiblity that.
So tried the Flagyl and no effect.

Low Dose Naltrexone is mentioned in 320 posts about Diarrhea.
-Later that morning, really bad Diarrhea. After this the doctor was convinced there is still some underlying infection so he prescribed Flagyl which seemed to do nothing. I have kept a log of my diet, bms and any symptoms/sensations for the last 8 months.The doctor also prescribed Lorazepam at this time which helped during stressful periods. I was managing but would have these uncomfortable urges or sensations in the bowel from time to time though nothing was there and occasionally huge amounts of dia for no apparent reason.
Also, the feeling of incomplete evacuation an hour or so after a movement. Saw a new Osteopathic/Naturopathic doctor who listened very carefully to my history and then concluded I had some sort of underlying infection or dysbiosis in the gut.Things leveled off but were still annoying and interfering with my day to day activities. I noticed during this time that after a bowel movement the gut and bowel started to feel sore and uneasy and I was getting the occasional twinge in the urethra.

Tests and the Doc can not find a good reason for.
Marin21 - thanks for the response. May I ask why your doctor put you on Low Dose Naltrexone, did he/she think it would help your IBS? I have heard lots of postive stuff about LDN and find it hard to believe that nobody else has.I started taking Nystatin for a Candida infection for 4 months during which time I laid off the Immodium and eliminated carbs or anything else that could feed the yeast. At the 3 month mark I was still having very soft loose stools and for.
But I think his initial feeling it was an infection was so strong and he felt that tests were unreliable so he thought it would be ok to use the mild antibiotic Xifaxan (which only stays in the gut).Naltrexone may cause liver damage when taken in large doses. It is not likely that naltrexone will cause liver damage when taken in recommended doses.
LDN FILLERS If your Low Dose Naltrexone comes from a compounding diarrhea, abdominal cramping, bloating, or flatulence you might want to try another filler.#3 idkwia Posted Advertisement my doc put me on Low Dose Naltrexone to try and reduce inflammation in the gut lining and to repair the immune system, both of which were a result of a en on it for a month and a half.
Had a consult with a Gastro doc who gave me a colonoscopy which apart from one small polyp was all clear. Felt great after the cleanout prior to the colonoscopy, but that didnt last.Your doctor should have tested you first for small intestinal overgrowth before giving you Rifaxamin and also for other pathogens and parasites before giving you Flagl in my humble opnion. There are also tests for candidiasis.
