IBS drugs: Once ibs has been confirmed (disease states excluded), treatment is symptom-directed. In your case, is your goal to address pain, diarrhea, constipation, bloating/gassiness, or variable stools? What have you tried so far, and with what success? Have sibo (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), lactose intolerance, celiac disease been ruled out?
