VIBERZI: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “I have severe acute IBS-D. I have been tested and retested for crohns and Colitis with negative results. I suffer from joint pain, bloating, 8 to 12 bowel movements a day with extreme pain with spasms. During the attacks I suffer with extreme fatigue and depression. Followed be anxiety. I would suffer from these symptoms about 5 to 6 days a week with now relief. With Viberzi I suffer maybe 4 to 5 days a month of full blown attacks and its usually due to feeling so good I eat something I know is going to hurt me. I now have 1 or 2 bowel movements a day which are normal. Not pencil poo or hot dog water poo. If you have a bowel condition you know what they are. Lol. It has changed my life. If your suffering go to the doctor. You will not regret it.”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “I have suffered from IBS-D for 25 years and finally found my miracle drug. After several meds and tons of accidents and close calls I can finally have some peace. Prior to this the only thing I knew I could eat without worry was a piece of toast or muffin. Salads, fruit, red meat, fried food or any cream based food was a trip to the bathroom. Now I can eat what I want within reason and 90% of the time I’m good! I take only one 100 mg in am as I don’t seem to need more. At the beginning I didn’t think I would last as I felt “weird” almost high but that has been rectified by taking it with food. Sometimes I build up an immunity to meds so that is my only fear that this happens as well.”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “Viberzi improved things, but still had Diarrhea several times a week, and it cost $5,000/year, which for something that only half worked is ridiculous.A specialist at Stanford then had me try Questran, a sequestration powder that is usually used for absorbing fats in the bowel that lead to Cholesterol , but does the same for bile – and it 100% cured the Diarrhea episodes and costs 10% of what Viberzi does.”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “I’ve dealt with IBS-D for 25 years. Recently I decided to give Viberzi a try. I took it for three days. It did reduce the amount of BMs in the first two days. From the beginning I felt dizzy, drowsy, stomach pain, nausea, and had coughing spells. On day three, I experienced all of the above with a serious attack of BMs, couldn’t stop going. The side effects trumped any benefit. The tv commercials were promising, but it just didn’t work for me!!”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “I have had problems for longer than I can remember. When I changed Dr’s, the new Dr said it sounded like IBS-D, gave me samples of Viberzi to try and my life changed dramatically. I have been on it for about 1 1/2 yrs. and now have the confidence to go eat whatever and be able to leave the house afterwards. I was on a $30 a month insurance plan, which has expired. I applied for assistance and was accepted, but now am told the Viberzi is on backorder. I am now without it and will see whether or not, my IBS-D comes back. Other than a slight dizzy feeling after taking Viberzi every morning, which I would just lay down for 1/2 hr and the feeling went away and the day was great, I have had no other side effects at all! I also cut it down to one in the morning and none at night because I was running out of pills and them being on backorder and still no problem.”

GRANNY (taken for 1 to 2 years) February 26, 2018

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “Viberzi has been a miracle worker for my wife (taking it for about a year). Like others have stated, two pills a day resulted in constipation, but 1/day resolved her diarrhea and gave her the confidence to take trip of over 30 minutes without worrying about having to make an emergency stop or have an ‘accident’. It has always been crazy-expensive, but with manufacturer discount cards provided by the Drs. office and insurance it was down to very manageable $30/refill. Evidently there has been a price increase since the first of the year. The “retail’ cost has jumped from $1300. to over $4000. With insurance and the discount card, it’s now just over $1300 which we can’t afford. So she’s back to living with the constant threat of not being able to find a bathroom fast enough.”
