    Marg posted a response, I think, to someone in the last day or so regarding one of her kids that had nausea and vomiting that was caused by the nerves in the stomache...I can't find it.

    Anyone know where it is? I want to send that on to a friend who's daughter is having similar issues.

    FWIW, Tryptanol is more commonly known in the states as Elavil. difficult child 1 was rx'd this for his IBS a few years ago and it helped those symptoms a lot. Unfortunately, it also made him more aggressive and violent so it's off limits for him now.

    I read a note that low dose naltrexone was looked at briefly for IBS and that the success they saw in a small open label study showed that the drug merits further investigation. I would REALLY love for that to happen, because I don't think anyone in good conscience would rx it for us now, even though I'd be willing to try it for difficult child 1.
