"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."

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."
