Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome has no trouble living up to its name. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both, but are not severe in most people. IBS is a chronic condition that you'll need to control long term by managing diet, lifestyle and stress. Sometimes, over-the-counter and prescription medications are used. If you don’t respond to traditional therapies, our compounding pharmacist can work together with you and your doctor to find the best way to relieve your problems. For example, Mayo Clinic notes that studies have shown that in people who have IBS with diarrhea, a specially coated tablet that slowly releases peppermint oil in the small intestine (enteric-coated peppermint oil) eases bloating, urgency, abdominal pain and pain while passing stool. We welcome your questions.
