The same thing...: ...you can do for your overactive gut with IBS. Many patients will show response to anticholinergic agents like Bentyl, Levsin, (hyoscyamine) etc. Be cautioned that too high or frequent a dose may cause urinary hesitancy. Before taking treatment for "IBS" please make sure the diagnosis is confirmed however.

Keep it simple.: Medical treatment of IBS can get complicated and is never wholly successful. Start simply with plenty of water, 50 grams of fiber daily, small more frequent meals and OTC remedies for bloating and such. Keep your fiber intake divided equally among 5-6 meals/snacks daily.
