In brief: Varies

Avoiding triggers of the diarrhea and constipation that frequently accompany irritable bowel syndrome are a mainstay of treatment.
Dietary changes, lifestyle changes, relaxation therapy, yoga, and other measures to reduce stress are helpful for many people. There are no current effective medications for all ibs patients. Depending on your symptoms, your doctor may prescribe targeted meds.
