Treatment approach to IBS

What is the treatment approach to IBS? 

The first avenue of treatment in all IBS patients is lifestyle modification, including moderate or vigorous exercise (if tolerated), a well-balanced diet, stress reduction, and plenty of sleep. If unsuccessful, pharmacologic treatments based on the predominant symptom and severity should be considered. In patients with severe symptoms or psychological comorbidities (e.g., anxiety, depression), a multidisciplinary approach should be considered as many of these patients may also benefit from the addition of psychological intervention.
