IBS Cure

There is no cure for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), as this is a chronic digestive condition. However, there are several treatment options that may help relieve IBS symptoms. Before prescribing any medications, a healthcare provider will first recommend lifestyle changes, such as changes in diet and stress reduction.
 
If lifestyle changes alone do not help improve IBS symptoms, there are various medications that your healthcare provider can recommend. Some of these medications include:
 
  • Antispasmodics
  • Laxatives
  • Antidiarrheals
  • Antidepressants or antianxiety medications.
     
It is important to be patient when trying to find the best treatment plan for your IBS symptoms. For most people, treatment for this condition is a trial-and-error process.
