Marijuana vs. IBS

Hi there..

I recently have been experiencing a number of symptoms, which after abit of research seem to match Irritable Bowel Syndrome to the letter. I have found that smoking marijuana relieves the symptoms (which, according to my research is also common), but wont fix the problem. Assuming that i do have IBS, what medication could i get that would help/cure me? anything over the counter?

I suggest that you consult a gastroenterologist, as IBS is a diagnosis made after all other possibilities have been ruled out. There is no cure for IBS but there are a few products that can alleviate your symptoms (which will depend on if you are constipated from IBS or if you experience diarrhea or both).
