Patients suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) experience a range of diarrhea (IBS-D) or constipation (IBS-C) symptoms.

  • Alosetron.
  • Eluxadoline.
  • Rifaximin.

Dr. Chey also discusses potential IBS-C remedies such as:

  • Linaclotide.
  • Plecanatide.
  • Lubiprostone.
  • Tegaserod.
  • Tenapanor.
