How we are regulated
Irritable Bowel Syndrome, also known as IBS, is a chronic condition that causes digestive problems. For example, people with IBS can experience symptoms like diarrhoea, constipation, cramps, and bloating after eating certain foods or if they’re under stress.
Changing your diet and lifestyle can help to reduce your IBS flare-ups, but some people could also benefit from medication to help manage their symptoms, especially if they need to avoid lots of different foods to keep their symptoms in check. Some of the most common triggers of IBS symptoms include fatty, spicy, or processed foods, caffeine, fizzy drinks, and alcohol.
Remember, your final treatment will be decided by our prescribers based on your answers provided within your consultation. You will be asked to indicate a preferred treatment option from a selected list after completion of your consult.
What IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) treatment can do
Prescription IBS medications often target specific symptoms, for example, laxatives which help to increase your fibre intake and relieve constipation and bloating.
On the other hand, you may benefit more from a treatment like loperamide, which is found in Imodium and can be used to combat diarrhoea.
A quick consultation with one of our prescribers will give them the information they need to prescribe you an IBS medication if they think it’s necessary.
When your prescription has been filled out, our pharmacy team will fulfil it and send it out to you in discreet, unmarked packaging, so you can get your medication without any nosy neighbours knowing your business.
