acid blockers for some patients with irritable bowel syndrome
There's a lot of interest in using acid blockers for some patients with irritable bowel syndrome.
It's often difficult to treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Patients can have varying symptoms that require different drugs...antidiarrheals, antidepressants, antispasmodics, etc.
Proton pump inhibitors or H2-blockers appear to help patients who have chronic diarrhea and feelings of bowel urgency that occur AFTER meals.
