1. you haven't told about the duration neither about any symptoms, for which Normaxin was prescribed?
2. normaxin which is combination of anti anxiety drug (chlordiazepoxide) and anti spasmodic (Clidinium Bromide,Dicyclomine hydrochloride) is given/ used to relax the digestive tract which is Irritable (hypersensitive) in certain Individuals resulting in alternate Diarrhea with Constipation.
3. because well known side effect is ,blurred vision, headache dizziness,drowsiness,constipation, and confusion, make sure you are not taking it,because you have to study at night.
4. in between take Isaphgula, zinc, vit B12,folic acid supplements, probiotics and avoid milk and milk products, Morease-I of Dr. Reddy's is a alternate to normaxin.

Homeopath Dr. Subhash Ponkiya's  Response
Welcome to health care magic forum,
The cause of irritable bowel syndrome is currently unknown. IBS is thought to result from an interplay of abnormal gastrointestinal (GI) tract movements, increased awareness of normal bodily functions, and a change in the nervous system communication between the brain and the GI tract. Abnormal movements of the colon.
Ibs is treatable condition with homeopathy. to get permanent cure you must have to take homeopathic treatment. so consult any good homeopathy and avoid all other medication which are supposed to be life long and with so much side effects.

welcome to health care magic
its your exam time so i will suggest you some home remedies only
Intake of adequate fluids enhances the digestive syatem so, drink on an average about 10 to 15 glasses of water (not cold). Drinking of water in early morning empty stomach kept in copper vessel overnight is beneficial.
Intake high fiber diet prevents constipation and hardening of stools.
Physical activities. Start exercise and yoga.
Spinach mixed with carrot juice is equally good too.
Taking mango fades away the constipated condition.
Taking boiled black grapes(dried) in milk before sleeping works as evacuation of bowel.
Taking boiled dates in milk certainly stop constipation.
Castor oil is very useful remedy in easy movement of bowel.
Taking 2 table spoon of almond oil in milk before sleeping, clears bowel next morning without any difficulty.
if complaint is still persisting u can go for homeopathy treatment it will give you permanent relief
all the best for your exams.
