Buscopan Cramps Tablet, 20 Tablets

Buscopan Cramps tablet offers targeted relief from abdominal cramps, pain and discomfort. It acts directly where the pain develops – in the abdomen.

Relieve the cramp, relieve the pain

After being swallowed, the Buscopan® tablet moves down the digestive tract. There, Buscopan® interrupts the signal that tells the gastro-intestinal muscles to cramp. The muscles can relax, the pain subsides, and the digestive process can return to normal.

How does Buscopan Cramps work?

Buscopan Cramps antispasmodic action works directly on the muscles of your bowel to relieve the cramping muscle spasm that causes the pain and discomfort.

How quickly does it work?

Buscopan® Cramps start to work in 15 minutes and you can be confident that you are targeting the source of your abdominal pain, rather than simply relieving it with analgesics.

What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a condition in which there is pain, spasm and bloating at almost any point between the groin, the navel and the sides, sometimes accompanied by diarrhoea and constipation. The symptoms may be more noticeable when you are feeling stressed and anxious.

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition that affects the digestive system.
  • It causes symptoms like stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. These tend to come and go over time, and can last for days, weeks or months at a time.
  • It’s usually a lifelong problem. It can be very frustrating to live with and can have a big impact on your everyday life.
  • There’s no cure, but diet changes and medicines can often help control the symptoms.
  • The exact cause is unknown – it’s been linked to things like food passing through your gut too quickly or too slowly, oversensitive nerves in your gut, stress and a family history of IBS.

The symptoms of IBS vary from one person to another, but if you’ve been experiencing any of the following symptoms for at least six months, you could be suffering from IBS:

  • Abdominal pain or discomfort – IBS pain is often described as ‘stabbing’, ‘sharp’ and ‘intense’ (not a ‘burning’ sensation like indigestion or heartburn) and it’s caused by spasms in your digestive tract.
  • Bloating or swelling of your abdomen – some IBS sufferers say the abdominal bloating caused by IBS can even make them ‘look pregnant’ or affect what clothes they wear.
  • Changes in your bowel habits – a change in what’s normal for you to either constipation or diarrhoea and sometimes alternating between the two.

Other Symptoms of IBS

There are other symptoms that could also indicate you’re suffering from IBS, from mildly irritating to downright uncomfortable and distressing.

THESE INCLUDE:

  • Embarrassing rumbling noises and excessive wind
  • Discomfort and pain relieved by going to the toilet
  • Passing mucus from your bottom
  • Belching
  • Heartburn or indigestion
  • Feeling sick
  • Tiredness
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain
  • Back ache
  • Needing to pass urine more frequently or urgently
  • Anxiety and depression
