IBS-D, Irritable Bowel Syndrome w/diarrhea.?

I was finally diagnosed with IBS-D. And since I was unable to work recovering from an accident and surgery, I had to drop my insurance. I mentioned to my doctor, could he work with me, and give me a medication, that had a generic. He insisted I take this new medication that came out with in the last few years, because he said it was the best one. But I just found out it cost $700 a month. I can not afford it. So I am looking for anyone who has IBS-D and is taking medication that seems to work, but is around $100?

    Try using Rose scented soaps and fragrance. Avoid drinking tea and try other homeopathic approaches like frequency healing. Any doctor that would recommend for his patient to spend so much money is not your friend. Open you eyes maybe you'll see the light. Find a new doctor.

    You don’t need medication for IBS. You need to stop eating certain food. Go on The FODMAP Diet. If you live in America I can understand why they want to try and sell drugs to you.

    I've has that for decades, and controlled it with loperamide, usually 1-2 mg per day. Under doctor's care.

    very cheap. over the counter. 

    you have to adjust the dose day by day, could be zero, could be 4 mg (2 pils) per day.

    dunno if that will work for you, but try it.

    doctors sometimes get enamored with the latest drug.
