Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Hi there.
There are many drugs to help with IBS.
A couple common ones are bentyl and levsin. These work very well for the cramps associated with it
There is also some cutting edge studies that show help with a diet called the FODMAP diet. There are certain foods that seem to trigger IBS
Here is a link to that diet.
It works very well
Also, ask your GP about levsin and bentyl. they will help too.
