Can caffeine and alcohol.

Caffeine is a stimulant, as coffee drinkers the world over can attest; unfortunately for folks with IBS, their bowels are what get stimulated. Caffeine irritates the intestines, acting as a laxative for some people who just don’t need that interference. Watch out for hidden sources of caffeine; you know coffee and soda, but don’t forget about energy drinks.
