ABSTRACT

Objectives: Allergic reaction to antibiotics is associated with increased use. And rate of Irritable Bowel Syndrome(IBS) is on the increase associated with stress, depression, anxiety, or previous intestinal problem. This case study reports significant improvement of patients with diarrhea accompanied by IBS who had suffered from allergic reaction to antibiotics after treatment with Sasang constitutional medicine. Methods: This patient was diagnosed as Taeeumin type. Sasang constitutional medicine was taken by the patient, almost three times per day during treatment periods. We measured the degree of the main symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, insomnia, itching etc, using Visual Analogue Scale(VAS). Results: The symptoms of diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, and insomnia were improved. VAS score was decreased from 4~5 to 0~1 for about two weeks. Conclusions: This case shows that Sasang constitutional medicine treatment can contribute to improve main symptoms accompanied by IBS.
