There are many over-the-counter medicines for IBS but they all treat the symptoms and do not address the underlying cause which can be food intolerances, bacteria overgrowth or missing the good bacteria, candida or parasites.
Irritable bowel syndrome does not usually go away unless you are proactive with treatment. The first step is to experiment with diet changes as this can have a big influence on digestion and if this does not work doing further testing to help identify the underlying cause is the next step.
