    Hi, I started Xenical about 7 wks ago and I have always suffered with IBS, to be honest for me its not alot of difference, before I started the Xenical I would have to rush to the loo, and now is no different apart from the fact ive lost weight!!! I have always had stabbing pains in my bowel but because I am watching what I eat that is ok. Hope ur having a gd weekend. x

    I have been using aloe Vera juice to help with bloating that the xen gives me, i have drunk it for a couple of weeks now. Works really great! ? while reading up on it.. It mentioned that it could be useful for ibs suffers.. Have you tried it?

    Thanks for your replies! I had been speaking to my gp about starting xen but was worried it would make my ibs worse, they gp never confirmed or denied this so I didn't start it! My symptoms are a lot better than they were when I wAs first diagnosed, I take colofac daily from gp and this helps, I basicly didn't want to go back to square one again! I'm going to give it a go I think!! Not tries the aloe drink I dnt think I could stomach it lol x

    The amount you take is 25ml 2x day.. The one I have has a bit of cranberry added so is not so bad :)

    Good luck

    Definately try the Xenical Shazza, I have been ok and if you find its worse you can stop the Xenical but its worth a go x and Mis-behave I think I will get some of the juice and give it a go, does it taste ok?x
