Relief for IBS

Although irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) cannot be cured, there are several treatment options that can help relieve symptoms. Some of these treatment options include lifestyle changes, such as changes in diet and stress reduction.
 
If lifestyle changes alone do not help improve IBS symptoms, there are certain medications that your healthcare provider can recommend. Some of these medications include:
 
  • Antispasmodics
  • Laxatives
  • Antidiarrheals
  • Antidepressants or antianxiety medications.
     
In most situations, treating irritable bowel syndrome is a trial-and-error process, as beneficial treatments can vary from person to person.
