what to use for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Patients often ask what to use for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Fiber is the right first step to try to improve symptoms.

Recommend SOLUBLE fiber supplements...psyllium (Metamucil, etc), polycarbophil (FiberCon, etc), methylcellulose (Citrucel), etc...plus foods such as rice, oatmeal, potatoes, and applesauce. These absorb water and form a gel so food moves more smoothly through the gut.
