There are few promising treatment options available for IBS in men. However, they are not yet proven for safety & I do not recommend until further follow up studies are done on this aspect as IBS is not a life threatening condition but some drugs can be! We have witnessed this in the past on other IBS drugs which were discontinued by FDA only after being in the market few years.
