Irritable Bowel Syndrome

I am suffering with IBS for the last 6 months and it increases particularly at night with extreme flatulence and growling sounds from the tummy. Have taken VSL 3, Lesuride and Fibril but to no avail. Please suggest alternate medication.

Hello there, Avoid problem foods. If certain foods make your signs and symptoms worse, don't eat them. These may include alcohol, chocolate, caffeinated beverages such as coffee and sodas, medications that contain caffeine, dairy products, and sugar-free sweeteners such as sorbitol or mannitol. If gas is a problem for you, foods that might make symptoms worse include beans, cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli. Fatty foods also may be a problem for some people. Chewing gum or drinking through a straw can lead to swallowing air, causing more gas. Eat at regular times. Don't skip meals, and try to eat about the same time each day to help regulate bowel function...
