Alverine is a smooth muscle relaxant that can be used for intestinal disorders. As an antispasmodic, Alverine is effective at relaxing the muscles surrounding your intestines and uterus, a symptom associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

IBS is a common intestinal condition which can cause your abdominal muscles to spasm, potentially causing a wide range of conditions, including:

• Intestinal pain
• Stomach pain
• Consistent diarrhoea
• Periods of constipation
• Increased wind

Alverine can also be used to treat diverticular disease of the colon, relieving the symptoms of the painful intestinal condition. This condition causes small pouches to form within the colon wall due to a weakness of muscle layers surrounding the colon. These pouches can become inflamed and painful if particles of food become trapped within the gastrointestinal tract. With IBS, the usual functioning of the gut muscle is lost, and can lead to symptoms such as bloating, diarrhoea, and constipation.

Alverine citrate works to relax the muscles associated with the gut (and around the womb for women), relieving the accompanying symptoms. For this reason Alverine citrate can also be used as a treatment for painful menstrual cramps which are caused by muscle contractions in the uterus (dysmenorrhea).

If using Alverine it is recommended that you avoid driving or operating any machinery as it may cause dizziness. If you are concerned about this, consult your doctor for more information.

Alverine should not be used without first consulting your doctor if any of the following apply to you:

• This is the first time you have suffered from symptoms associated with IBS
• You are over the age of 40
• You have found blood in your stools
• You have severe constipation
• You feel sick or have been vomiting
• You are eating less or have lost weight
• You look pale and feel lethargic
• You are having trouble urinating
• You have abnormal vaginal bleeding/discharge
• You are or might be pregnant
• You have been abroad recently

If new symptoms develop after taking Alverine, if your symptoms become worse, or if they do not improve after two weeks, cease usage and consult with your doctor.

Alverine should be taken orally up to three times a day. In order to gain the most benefit, it is recommended that this medication is taken as regularly as possible. Alverine should be taken at the same time every day unless your doctor has given you alternate information. You may not feel the benefit of Alverine immediately, and it may take a few days to feel the full effects. Other concurrent medical conditions may require different doses at different times and this can be discussed with your doctor.

*Prescription medicines are supplied subject to a medical consultation at the discretion of a doctor.

In order to relieve your muscle pain, take one or two Alverine capsules up to three times a day. 

Side effects are uncommon when using Alverine, however there is a small chance that you may encounter any of the following:

• Feelings of sickness of dizziness
• Headaches
• Allergic reactions (itching or rashes)

If you have any further concerns or experience any side effects not listed above, cease usage and consult with your doctor immediately.

• Alverine citrate

There are also two inactive ingredients contained in Alverine capsules:

Before using Alverine capsules for the first time it is important to read the following warnings carefully in order to make sure you are making a fully informed decision.
