Retired nurse, living with IBS-C

Suzanne VO:

Since starting IBSRELA about a year ago, I go to the bathroom more regularly – which I haven’t been able to do in many years.

For me IBSRELA has made a difference in my symptoms. I no longer feel bloating and pain like I did before. Because my symptoms are better managed, I am able to go camping with my husband and spend time with my grandkids.

How does IBSRELA work?

IBSRELA works in a different way than other IBS-C medications.

IBSRELA relieves the symptoms of IBS-C by:

    1. Keeping water in the gut to help soften stool and help it move along, so you have more well-formed and regular bowel movements
    2. Restoring gut barrier function to reduce belly pain
    3. Lessening the activity of pain-sensing nerves in the intestine to reduce belly pain

This was seen in animal studies, and the relevance to humans is not known.

IBSRELA works exclusively in the intestine to help reduce, improve, and relieve the symptoms of IBS-C.
