- abdominal (tummy) pain or discomfort that can often be relieved by going to the toilet (passing stools)
- changes in bowel habits, such as episodes of constipation or diarrhoea
- abdominal bloating
How common is irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)?
IBS is one of the most common digestive conditions. In England, an estimated 10-20% of people have IBS. Symptoms of IBS usually begin in early adulthood when a person is 20 to 30 years old. IBS is twice as common in women than in men.
How does the Anytime Doctor service work?
||Register online and complete the free online medical questionnaire consultation. A doctor will review your questionnaire and, if it is safe to do so, approve you for treatment. You do not pay for your doctor consultation.
||If you are approved for treatment you will be sent a text message asking you to log back into your secure patient record. You can pay for your irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) treatment using a debit or credit card.
||Order before 4pm Monday to Friday and our partner UK Pharmacy will aim to dispense and despatch your medicine in that day's post using Royal Mail Special Delivery for delivery before 1pm the next working day. Your medicine can be delivered to your work or home address, someone needs to sign for the delivery but it does not have to be you.
Why are there no prices shown for the Anytime Doctor treatment services?
At Anytime Doctor, we aim to offer you similar pattern of healthcare as if you were to visit your normal GP for a face to face consultation. We believe it is important that you complete a medical consultation and receive a diagnosis by a licensed doctor before you are offered treatment options. Once a doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your registration and medical consultation is free
and you are under no
obligation to purchase any treatment after your consultation.
