Change diet,cleanse: 90+ % of the time, ibs is due to food sensitivities and/or inflammation of the GI tract caused by overgrowth of bad bugs and a loss of the 'good' bugs. Look into doing a yeast cleanse! and start eliminating foods to see if they are causing--start with grains and dairy, as these are the most common culprits. Other common ones are eggs and soy. Take a probiotic as well that's broad spectrum.

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.
