I have GAD and OCD on top of my IBS so I take a once daily Xanax XR which seems to help my guts as well. Make sure you are
open and honest with your doc if you consider taking a benzo so they can make sure if its the right med for you. It can be very addictive, although not always, but your doc would be the best person to help you make that decision.
