Fybogel Mebeverine can be used to relieve the symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It does this by using two active ingredients: ispaghula husk, and mebeverine.

Ispaghula husk is a kind of fibre known as a bulk-forming laxative that is used to treat constipation and maintain the normal functioning of the bowel. When it comes into contact with fluid, ispaghula husk swells up in the gut, increasing the volume of your faeces. The body does not absorb ispaghula; it simply increases the mass present in your bowel, allowing the muscles of the bowel wall to push the contents along more easily, helping to relieve constipation. It usually takes a few days for this to work.

Mebeverine is a kind of medication known as an antispasmodic. It works by relaxing the muscles in and around the intestinal wall, relieving the painful spasms within the abdominal area and other related symptoms such as cramps, bloating, and wind.

Fybogel Mebeverine is currently the only treatment available in the UK that contains both ispaghula and mebeverine. These two ingredients can be purchased in separate medications however. Fybogel is available on its own and contains ispaghula.

For adults and children over the age of 12, one sachet of Fybogel Mebeverine should be taken half an hour before breakfast, and half an hour before dinner. If necessary, a third dose can be taken around lunchtime. Stir the sachet into a glass of cold water, approximately 150ml, and drink immediately.

Fybogel Mebeverine sachets should not be consumed without water. Each individual dose should be stirred and dissolved fully in water before use. Without water there is a risk that the contents of the sachet may cause a blockage within the gut. Always make sure to drink plenty of fluids throughout the day.

Fybogel Mebeverine sachets should not be consumed before going to bed. If your symptoms have not improved after two weeks you should consult your doctor. If your symptoms deteriorate, or if you experience any new symptoms, cease use and speak with your doctor.

Not everyone will experience side effects when they take medication, however if you do they can include:

  • You might experience bloating or flatulence during the first few days of treatment because of the increased intake of fibre in your diet. This may lessen as you continue taking the treatment. If these symptoms are worrying you, then reduce the daily amount to 1 sachet a day.
  • Consult your pharmacist or doctor if symptoms persist or if you experience other symptoms after taking this product.
  • Avoid taking this product without water.
  • In case you accidentally take more than recommended, drink plenty of water.
  • Avoid taking more than the recommended dosage.
  • Avoid using this product after the expiry date indicated on the pack

If you are concerned about these effects, or if the product affects you in any other way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

The active ingredients contained in this medicine is/are:

3.5g Ispagula husk and 135mg Mebeverine.

The medicine also contains the following inactive ingredients to make up the complete product:

Aspartame and saccharin sodium sweeteners, potassium bicarbonate, sodium bicarbonate, polysorbate 80, silica colloidal anhydrous, citric acid and riboflavin sodium phosphate colouring.

You should contact your doctor before beginning to use Fybogel Mebeverine if any of the following apply to you:

  • You are 40 years of age or over
  • You have lost your appetite or lost weight
  • You have blood in your stools
  • You are vomiting
  • You are looking pale and feeling tired
  • You have severe constipation

  • You have unusual bleeding or discharge from your vagina
  • You have difficulty or pain when urinating
  • You have been prescribed a potassium-sparing diuretic medicine 
  • You have been prescribed potassium supplements

After taking Fybogel mebeverine sachets you may experience an increase in flatulence and bloating. This is because of the excess gas that will be present in the stomach and intestines in the first few days, however this will improve over time.
