Please be advised We highly recommend that you Read all medication leaflet carefully before you start taking any medicine because it contains important information for you. Buscopan® Tablets have an antispasmodic action that specifically targets the source of abdominal cramping or the pain and discomfort associated with IBS. They start to work within 15 minutes, acting directly on the muscle spasm in the bowel to quickly and effectively relieve painful cramps and discomfort. Buscopan can be used at the first sign of a flare-up as needed as very little is absorbed into the bloodstream. It is also unlikely to cause any side effects such as drowsiness.
How to Use:
Adults and children over 12 years: Take two tablets up to four times each day.
Each tablet contains 10mg Hyoscine butylbromide.
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.
The medicine is used to manage muscle pain, backache, dental pain and period pain. Directions:
Always take this medicine as described in the leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Take your tablets with a glass of water, preferably with or after food. You should swallow the tablets without chewing or crushing them. The tablets can be divided into equal doses.
