IBS is a functional disorder in which recurrent abdominal pain is associated with defecation or a change in bowel habits. Intestinal disorders are often present (eg, constipation, diarrhea, or a mix of constipation and diarrhea), as well as symptoms of bloating. The onset of symptoms should occur at least 6 months before diagnosis and symptoms should be present during the last 3 months.
