About irritable bowel syndrome

Back to the top
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a condition that affects the large intestine and may be characterized by cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation. IBS is often a long-term condition that requires a combination of lifestyle changes, management, and regular check-ins with a doctor or gastrointestinal specialist.
Common Medication
Treatment Options

IBS treatment focuses on symptom relief so that you can live as normally as possible. Your doctor might suggest medications such as:

  • Pain medications. Pregabalin and gabapentin are two drugs that can help with extreme pain and bloating.
  • Fiber supplements. Constipation can be controlled by taking a psyllium supplement with water.
  • Laxatives. If fiber doesn't work, your doctor might suggest over-the-counter laxatives such as magnesium hydroxide oral or polyethylene glycol.
  • Anti-diarrheal medications. Loperamide, an over-the-counter medicine, can help reduce diarrhea. A bile acid binder such as cholestyramine, colestipol, or colesevelam, may also be prescribed by your doctor.
  • Anticholinergic medications. Anticholinergic drugs are used to treat a variety of conditions. Painful bowel spasms can be relieved with medications like dicyclomine. They're sometimes given to patients who have diarrhea problems.

This is not a complete list of medications your doctor may prescribe. Consult with your doctor about what medication is right for you.
