  • I haven't been "officially" diagnosed with IBS, but I definitely have many of the symptoms. I don't know much about that medication, but you can look up all kinds of information on it by going to: and typing in the medication name. It will give you the purpose of the medication, side effects, how it works, and what it might interact with.

  • My daughter had IBS, she changed her diet to eat more bland foods and easily digested foods. This plus taking more time to relax seemed to hep her, without taking medication.
