My IBS isn't too bad so I don't know if I would qualify, but it's something to think about. You just have to be careful. There could be a lot of side effects that you might get. I would talk to your doctor about it if you can.

For my GI issues I go to Borland Groover Clinic. They do clinical trials and research all the time. Every now and then I see one for my condition, but since I'm already on meds I'm typically disqualified. I would definitely try one if I qualified. My dad is on one through the VA and he gets paid for it. He has to take all his meds into the office once a month to show them that he's compliant.
Have any of you tried a medication trial for your IBS? Would you? There is one listed on the "jobs" on Craig's list and I am always getting things for those kind of trials. I have never thought to try one except if I had to for cancer. I am wondering how safe they are.
