More typically with IBS-A types if you can prevent the backing up for a day or two you can prevent the flush out. The problem with only treating the diarrhea side is that you plug up too much then end up causing more diarrhea.Now if you have diarrhea every single day then I'd call it IBS-D rather than IBS-A.If you do tend to have more of the constipation for a couple of days then a blow out, finding the fiber/water/osmotic laxative combo that keeps you going every day may do you more good than anything else. A lot of people are more anxious and fearful of the diarrhea so work to prevent that, but don't try to deal with the constipation which is why they have the blow outs.
