Irritable Bowel Syndrome Glossary(IBS) Medications
Medications for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Most IBS patients are initially prescribed an anti-spasmodic drug upon diagnosis, though you may have received a low-dose antidepressant, anti-diarrheal, laxative, or even one of the newest (and thus potentially riskiest) Irritable Bowel Syndrome drugs, Zelnorm, Lotronex, or Amitiza.
There are actually quite a few different prescription medications available for Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms, but their effectiveness can vary greatly from one person to the next.
There are also effective non-drug alternatives for IBS, including symptom-specific treatments.
