What is mebeverine?
Mebeverine is a type of medicine called an antispasmodic, which works directly in the smooth muscle of the gastrointestinal tract to relieve painful stomach cramps associated with irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive conditions.
Can you take mebeverine and Buscopan together?
No, mebeverine and Buscopan should not be taken together. Buscopan contains the active ingredient hyoscine butylbromide, a type of medicine used to relieve painful stomach cramps, bladder cramps and period pain. Mebeverine hydrochloride is also used to relieve stomach cramps, but taking both of these medicines together won’t provide additional relief.
What is IBS?
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a condition that affects the digestive system, and it is quite common. You may experience symptoms varying from stomach cramps, bloating, gas, diarrhoea and constipation. Your symptoms may come and go, last for a period of time, or you may find that certain things trigger a flare-up.
What causes IBS?
The exact cause of IBS isn’t yet known, but there are some factors that are common in people with the condition. If you’ve got an abnormality in your digestive system, it may cause discomfort when releasing gas or stool. Your brain won’t send the accurate signals to your intestines which can result in your body overreacting to the digestive process, causing discomfort, constipation and diarrhoea. You’re more prone to developing IBS if you’ve had a serious bout of diarrhoea caused by an infection, or if you’ve got a lot of bacteria harbouring in the intestines. Stressful situations can also be a trigger for IBS in certain people, especially if it occurred during childhood.
