Fiber: Depending on which symptoms you are trying to get rid of, fiber is a great way to decrease the diarrhea and, as a by-product, help with the cramping of ibs.

Diet and fluids: I rarely prescribe meds for ibs. In my experience teaching people to eat and drink properly resolves most if not all symptoms when the patient is compliant and follows through. Hi fiber, 80-100 ounces non caffeine, non alcoholic beverages each day, regular meal times, excercise. Consistency is the key to being symptom free.

Individualized : Approach. There are many causes that may include: stress, hormones, infections, inflammation, structural to name a few. Best is to work together with a gastroenterologist to arrive at the correct answer for you. Everyone is different and there is not one straight approach. You may start with as simple as an elimination diet and record which foods may aggravate you. Best wishes!
