There's a medication that's over the counter for IBS it's in the tummy aisle. I'll find out the name and write to you with it. My husband takes it for his IBS and it helps him a whole lot. I know Target carries it. My GI doctor put me on prescribed medicine that I take before each meal but I have a bunch of tummy troubles with the IBS. Do you have IBS-D or IBS-C? If you don't know what that stands for it's Diarreha or Constipation. I have IBS-C, my Husband has IBS-D. That makes life interesting.

It is true that IBS is unpredictable. Sometimes you just have to accept this with a sense of humor about the whole thing. The gas just comes, that's it. Mine is uncontrollable. I do not have any warning, gas just comes. There's no use getting disturbed about it. Positive thinking and that sense of humor are important tools to have no matter what problem you have healthwise. Enjoy yourself, no matter what! Love, Sugarcop
Ok so I have been eating better and all and I have noticed that helping my IBS quite a bit. Last night and today I have had that bloated feeling like I swallowed a darn balloon. I did not eat anything different from what I have been and that is what I hate about IBS. sometimes I cannot predict it. People have told me to not eat this or that again but they do not get that the same food sometimes bothers me and others it does not and I have no way of predicting. This gas feeling is the worst! When you are actually "throwing up" air with a big ole huge burp that is bad to me. Anybody have any medicines that help? I do the Tums Smoothies but the Gas X and all never helps with this.
