Thanks for contacting XXXXXXX with your query.

IBS is usually a persistent problem, which gets aggravated time to time. This will need treatment as and when you have symptoms. Colospa and amitryptaline are established medicines for IBS particularly if the symptoms predominantly are pain, and diarrhoea. These may not cure you but certainly may improve your symptoms.

Please write back if you have anymore queries.

Best wishes,

Dr Dinesh Singal
