Alverine Citrate 60mg Capsules reviews
Alverine Citrate 60mg Capsules FAQs
Alverine citrate is used for treating IBS, but it can also be used for treating intense period pain and diverticular disease of the colon. It’s a capsule that you take three times a day on a regular basis to help control involuntary muscle spasms.
A feeling of nausea or dizziness, headaches, and minor allergic reactions are possible side effects; but they are not necessarily that common.
It depends on the individual. You should speak to a doctor if you feel no improvements within a few weeks, or your symptoms seem to be getting worse.
Yes, if your doctor prescribes it to you.
There are two dosages: 60mg and Alverine Forte at 120mg. Forte tends to be prescribed by the doctor if the 60mg capsules taken a few times a day have had no effect.

Speak to your doctor first before taking Alverine while pregnant or breastfeeding.
It’s safe to take alverine citrate alongside other popular IBS medicines. You can continue to take medicines like Buscopan, Ibuprofen, Paracetamol, Fybogel, and Pepto Bismol while on Alverine, but always discuss with with your doctor first.
Alverine tends to be well-reviewed, but it can take a while for people to find the ideal IBS treatment for them. It’s important to consider how lifestyle changes may improve your condition, as tablets can help relieve symptoms, but not ‘cure’ the condition. Speak to a doctor to see what treatment they would recommend for you individually.
For IBS relief, small packs of Buscopan IBS and Buscopan Cramps can be bought over the counter — it’s also an antispasmodic. You may also want to try natural remedies like peppermint oil. Fybogel Mebeverine may also help. Remember that persistent symptoms should always be checked by a doctor. IBS should be diagnosed to check symptoms are not caused by other conditions.
Alverine isn't normally used for period cramps although some doctors may prescribe it. Speak to your GP to find the best treatment for you.
No, it’s a prescription-only IBS treatment. It can be purchased online using our Online Doctor service without the need for a prescription from your GP.
