Can I get my IBS medication for a cheaper price?

Answered by Shivam Patel, PharmD, BSPS, RPh | Posted April 16, 2018

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a disorder of the gastrointestinal tract presented by symptoms including abdominal pain and irregular bowel movements without a specific cause. IBS affects between 12-20% of adults. Medications often used to manage IBS symptoms include: Lubiprostone (Amitiza), Linaclotide (Linzess), and Dicyclomine hydrochloride (Bentyl).

In most cases, a 90-day supply of any medication is cheaper than a 60-day supply. Pharmacies outside the U.S. sell IBS medications at a steep discount, up to 75% off.
