Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, is a chronic condition that affects the digestive system. It can cause bloating, stomach cramps, constipation, and diarrhoea.

Although there is no cure for IBS, it can be managed with IBS treatments such as tablets. 


At Pharmacy Online, we have a range of treatments to help manage IBS symptoms. Start your online consultation today.

Causes

The exact cause is unknown, but it has been linked to stress, oversensitive nerves in the gut, family history of IBS, or hypersensitivity to certain foods.

Treatments

There is no cure for IBS, but symptoms can be managed with treatment. Many people find that their symptoms are caused by specific foods, but these are not usually the same for everyone. There are also medications available to help relieve symptoms, that are readily available here at Pharmacy Online, so get in contact today to discuss options.

It’s important to maintain a healthy balanced diet. It may also help to keep a food diary so you can pinpoint if there are any foods which trigger IBS symptoms.
