If the itching skin and rash are a new development, it would be wise to contact the IBS nurse, at least to be on the safe side....

While my experiences may not be what everyone has had- I feel it is worthwhile to share any and all experiences that may be beneficial to others.

I agree, when dealing with potential side effects of these medications it is better to err on the side of caution and let your doctors know even if over the phone what is going on. Along with routine blood tests, letting them know of side effects can help you determine if it is something to worry about or not.
