s in just two of the weekly abdominal pain measurements and saw no statistically significant effect in bloating. "This study helps confirm that Bacillus coagulans is effective in IBS," said Larysa Hun, M.D., author of the 44 subject study. "A combination of Bacillus coagulans, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and Streptococcus thermophilus was previously shown in a clinical trial to significantly improve IBS symptoms, but it was not possible to determine what effect, if any, each strain had by itself."

IBS is associated with impaired quality of life, psychiatric problems, family disruption, impaired workplace performance, unnecessary tests and surgery, high direct and indirect costs, and even death due to IBS medications or interventions. "IBS is the most common functional gastrointestinal disorder (FGID) and represents a tremendous public health problem," noted Nicholas Talley, M.D., Ph.D., of the Mayo Clinic, an expert on IBS and author of a scientific review article about the impact FGIDs have on society.

Two drugs, alosetron and lubiprostone, are FDA-approved only for certain types of IBS: alosetron is for women with severe IBS-related diarrhea only and has serious potential side effects; lubiprostone is only for women with IBS-related constipation. Doctors commonly recommend over-the-counter medications such as laxatives, antidiarrheals, and bulking agents for IBS. But in a recent interview, Talley said, "they don't work well for most people with IBS."
