What are the common herbal medicines in IBS? Are they effective and safe?

Dr. Drossman There are no scientifically established types of herbal medicines to treat IBS, though there may be many products available commercially. The use of herbal remedies is within the category of complementary or alternative medicine and can be used as long as they are not harmful, most often in addition to traditional treatments in western society. Many years ago there was a study that showed greater benefit for individuals who had herbals selectively chosen by the herbalist. However 10 years later it is still not clear whether there are standard herbal treatments for this condition.
