IBS is typically a diagnosis of exclusion. It could be associated with diarrhea predominance or constipation predominance or mixed. It also has some psychological component to it. Stress, diet, sleep etc. needs to be stabilized as well. Not everything is treated with medications alone in this case. If it persists with lifestyle adjustments and buscopan- might need to see your GP again for work up.
