Buscopan IBS Relief – 20 tablets
Buscopan IBS Relief Tablet is an antispasmodic used to relieve painful colicky aching and spasm in the bowel associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (simply called IBS) is a condition where the muscles of the bowel appear to be very sensitive to factors such as emotional stress and anxiety, or food intolerance. This sensitivity can cause painful cramps or spasms in the bowel, which are short lived (bouts, rarely lasting more than a day or so). This is usually accompanied by bloated feeling, excess wind and abdominal discomfort. Sometimes IBS causes periods of diarrhoea or constipation as the case may be.
You must be at least 16 years old to purchase this product.
