Viberzi (eluxadoline) is prescribed to treat the pain and discomfort related to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). IBS is a fairly common disease related to how the colon digests and processes food. IBS produces symptoms like muscle cramps, gas, bloating, diarrhea, and a general discomfort. Viberzi works by slowing the muscles of the colon, allowing more ease of digestion and desensitizing the nerves in the colon to stimulation.
There is currently no generic available for Viberzi, as it just received a patent in 2015. Viberzi is classified as a controlled pain medication and is very expensive. Uninsured patients can expect to pay as much as $1100 a month for 60 tablets. Even the insured have co-pays that begin to add up over time. There is no cure for IBS and patients may be prescribed Viberzi over an extended period.
