Lubiprostone for IBS

When irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) occurs along with constipation, it can often be treated with lubiprostone (Amitiza®). The drug cannot be used for any other types of IBS. What's more -- only women can take it; lubiprostone has not been shown in clinical studies to be effective for men.
