You would have to discuss diet specifics with your prescribing provider. Some people with IBS cannot handle dairy, and others can. As far as gluten, that is usually only restricted if you have celiac disease.

If you aren't certain what you are supposed to be eating and drinking it is a good idea to call your provider and ask about specifics. Good luck to you.

Hi Anonymous

They are not the same. There should be packet inserts with both of them which explain what is in them and how they work. Basically duspatalin is an antispasmodic meaning it helps stop the spasming in your bowel. So it should settle down the starting and stopping of spasms all the time and allow it to work more smoothly.

Probiotics are taken to replace or increase the natural flora or bacteria in your bowel that may be stripped out by antibiotics or things like IBS. Enhancing the natural bacteria that belong in the bowel can help it work like it should, and can help it heal. So these two things should work together to help decrease your symptoms.

I hope that helps explain it to you. If you have further questions, please let us know.

u can use duspatalin (for your IBS symptoms) along with dusphalac (as a prebiotic). together they work perfectly.
