Buy Mebeverine online for IBS

Mebeverine is a medication used as an antispasmodic to treat lower abdominal cramping and bloating. The gastrointestinal disease known as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is frequently linked to these symptoms.

Irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, is a very prevalent illness which results in intestinal or gut spasms and discomfort.

Mebeverine relaxes specific muscles in the wall of your intestines by acting on them. This reduces cramping and pain, alleviating symptoms such as cramping, bloating, and diarrhea or constipation.

Common symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Cramps
  • Bloating
  • Wind (flatulence)
  • Suddenly needing to use the toilet
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea

What is Mebeverine used for?

Mebeverine helps ease tummy troubles like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and similar issues caused by tight muscles in the gut. It's used for:

✅ Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) (A common disorder affecting the large intestine (gut), causing abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel habits).
✅ Chronic irritable colon (Similar to IBS, it involves long-term irritation and inflammation of the colon).
✅ Mucous colitis (Another term for IBS, characterized by excessive production of mucus in the colon).
✅ Spastic constipation (Constipation caused by muscle spasms in the intestines, making it difficult to pass stool).
✅ Spastic colitis (Inflammation of the colon accompanied by muscle spasms, often causing pain and changes in bowel movements).

How does Mebeverine treat IBS?

Mebeverine works by targeting smooth muscles in the walls of the intestines (gut). These muscles are responsible for the rhythmic contractions that move food and waste through the digestive tract.

In conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), these contractions can become abnormal and overly intense, leading to symptoms such as cramping, bloating, and changes in bowel habits.

Mebeverine acts as an antispasmodic, specifically relaxing the smooth muscles in your gut. This reduces the intensity and frequency of contractions, allowing your bowels to function more normally and relieving IBS symptoms.

Overall, Mebeverine helps by modulating the activity of these smooth muscles, leading to fewer spasms and a more comfortable digestive process.

Mebeverine: who can take it?

Mebeverine can be taken by most adults and kids who are 10 years of age and older. It is sometimes given to kids 3 years old and older, it is occasionally prescribed.

  • Those with paralytic ileus, a condition causing constipation due to inactive gut

Warnings

Mebeverine and Other Drug Interaction

Mebeverine can be taken safely with most prescription medications as well as over-the-counter pain relievers including ibuprofen and paracetamol.

It is normally not recommended to take it in conjunction with other IBS therapies due to the same mechanism of action of these medications.

Unless a doctor specifically instructs you differently, never use more than one IBS medication at once. It's unlikely that it will provide you with more symptom alleviation, and it can have more negative effects.

Mebeverine in Pregnancy

Before using this medication, see your doctor or chemist if you are expecting a child, are currently nursing a baby, believe you may be pregnant or are thinking about getting pregnant.

The safety of mebeverine for expectant mothers is a topic on which little information is available. Mebeverine should be stopped before becoming pregnant or as soon as you find out you are pregnant, according to your doctor's advice. Using mebeverine while nursing is not advised.

Mebeverine and Alcohol

Alcohol may worsen the symptoms of IBS, therefore while it is permissible to drink while taking Mebeverine, it is not advised.

FAQ

  • What is IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

    A relatively common disorder that causes pain and spasms in the gut or intestine is called irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS. Food travels through the long, muscular tube that is the gut, to allow for digestion.

    You experience pain when the intestine spasms and contracts excessively. This medication relieves pain and other IBS symptoms in addition to spasms.

  • What are some of the symptoms of IBS?

    The main symptoms of IBS include:

    • Stomach pain and spasms
    • Constant diarrhoea, or recurrent episodes of constipation and diarrhoea
    • Flatulence and a bloated feeling
    • Hard, tiny stools that resemble pellets or ribbons (faeces)
    • These symptoms may vary from person to person.
  • Is Mebeverine available over-the counter?

    It is available for purchase online from Ashcroft Pharmacy.

  • How long to take Mebeverine for IBS?

    Take mebeverine only during an IBS flare-up. Stop when symptoms improve, which might take up to 2 weeks. If symptoms persist after this or worsen, consult a doctor.

  • What if I forget to take my mebeverine dose?

    If you forget to take mebeverine, skip the missed dose and take the next one at the usual time. Don't double up on doses.

    Forgetting doses? Set an alarm or ask your pharmacist for reminders. Missing one dose won't likely hurt you.

  • What if you take too much?

    Taking too much mebeverine? It's unlikely to cause harm, but talk to a pharmacist or doctor if you're concerned.

  • When can I expect to start feeling better?

    Mebeverine typically starts working within an hour, and you should start feeling better within 1 to 3 hours after taking it.

  • Does Mebeverine cause any laxative effects?

    No, mebeverine doesn't have a laxative effect by itself.

    However, you can find a combination of mebeverine with a laxative called ispaghula husk (Fybogel Mebeverine). This can aid with constipation linked to IBS and is available at pharmacies.

  • Is weight gain or loss a potential side effect of taking mebeverine?

    No, weight gain or loss is not a reported side effect of taking Mebeverine. Here's why: Mebeverine works by relaxing muscles in the gut, not affecting your metabolism or calorie intake.

  • Will Mebeverine affect my contraception?

    Mebeverine does not interact with any type of contraception, including the combined pill or emergency contraception.

  • Should I avoid any specific foods or drinks while taking mebeverine?

    While taking mebeverine, you can continue to eat and drink normally. However, if you have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), it's beneficial to avoid foods that trigger your symptoms. Common triggers include caffeine, fizzy drinks, and fried food.

  • Are there other medicines for IBS?

    Yes, there are other treatments available for IBS. Peppermint oil and Buscopan (hyoscine butylbromide) are options. They are also antispasmodics, working similarly to mebeverine by relaxing stomach muscles to alleviate painful cramps.

    Both peppermint oil and Buscopan are purchasable from pharmacies, with Buscopan also available on prescription.

  • Is Buscopan the same as Mebeverine?

    Hyoscine, the active ingredient in buscopan, relieves IBS-related muscular spasms through a different method. Mebeverine is not the same as Buscopan.
