Spastic Colon Go Away?

Hi im 18 years old and aparently i have possibly developed a spastic colon, my question is can i ever get rid of my spastic colon??? so i can stop taking medicine for it because the thought of taking medication the rest of my life when im only 18 is killing me. This all started after a bad reaction to some acne medication. I have obviously stopped the acne meds long time ago but the spasims continue… im hoping that since i was fine before the medicine there is a good chance i can get rid of them.

Thanks and Godbless

    Spastic colon is another term for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a common disorder characterized by abdominal cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, constipation and diarrhea.

    The term "spastic colon" describes the increase in spontaneous contractions (motility) of muscles in the small and large intestines associated with IBS. These contractions are sometimes called spasms. However, because IBS may also be associated with decreased motility, the term "spastic colon" isn’t always accurate.

    The cause and severity of IBS varies from person to person. Treatment is aimed at relieving symptoms, and may include diet changes, stress reduction, and anticholinergic or anti-diarrheal medications.

    While there is no cure yet, there are many ways to successfully manage – and prevent – all Spastic Colon symptoms. You can control your Spastic Colon, not vice versa.
