Thanks for your comment but Vytorin is a combination medication is used along with a proper diet to help lower "bad" cholesterol and fats (such as LDL, triglycerides) and raise "good" cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. It has nothing to do with managing IBS..
Nothing was listed in the info about this drug regarding IBS patients so my family doctor gave it to me to help lower my cholesterol. It had a horrible side effect for me and I was curious to see if anyone else out there had experienced bad side effects with this drug. Especially people with IBS like mine.
I manage my IBS with diet and the help of Heathers Tummy care,but this drug messed all that up. :)
