In brief: IBS flare

Gemfibrozil (lopid) might increase flatulence, as well as loose bowel movements.
If that is what you mean by ibs flare up. You should also be concerned about symptoms like pain, nausea and vomitting that could be related to pancreatitis that is a known complication from the use of gemfibrozil.
