I prefer None: I have never prescribed drugs for so called ibs. You have to change some bad habits like eating at regular times daily, same quantities, moderate fiber intake and most important 80-100 ounces of caffeine free/alcohol free fluids. Over time possibly 1-3 months your symptoms will reolve, but you must maintin this regimen of retraining your bowel.
