How Mebeverine is used to treat chronic IBS

IBS is a relatively common digestive system complaint that usually affects young adults — it is significantly more common amongst women than men. IBS can be made worse by diet and stress, and many people have recurring IBS flare-ups throughout their lives. 

When someone has IBS, their gut and bowels painfully spasm whenever food passes through. This can lead to intense pain and feelings of discomfort, and can be very distressing for anyone suffering from IBS — making everyday life, socialising around food, and going to the toilet difficult.  Mebeverine tablets help control these stomach spasms and relieve cramping thanks to their active ingredient: mebeverine hydrochloride.

Mebeverine is a medication that can be used to effectively treat the symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), as well as other stomach and intestinal conditions which cause your abdominal muscles to spasm such as:

  • Chronic irritable colon
  • Spastic constipation
  • Mucous colitis
  • Spastic colitis

Mebeverine should only be used by adults if they have been diagnosed with IBS by a doctor. 

It is a prescription-only IBS treatment and is generally prescribed to be taken as a tablet up to three times a day.

 

Colofac vs. Mebeverine: what’s the difference?

You may have heard of Mebeverine as Colofac — which is the branded version of the same IBS treatment. Both Colofac and Mebeverine have the same active ingredient: mebeverine hydrochloride. Mebeverine is cheaper than Colofac, but just as effective, so it’s become a popular choice for many IBS sufferers. 

 

Antispasmodics: effective treatment for adult IBS 

Mebeverine hydrochloride is a type of medicine known as an antispasmodic or smooth muscle relaxant. It works to relax the muscles in the wall of the intestines and gut. 

 

Why does this matter for IBS?

For anyone suffering from IBS these muscular contractions (known as peristalsis) are often abnormal, leading to abdominal difficulties and pain.

By relieving these muscle spasms, related symptoms will also be reduced:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Cramps
  • Bloating
  • Wind/Flatulence
  • Diarrhoea and suddenly needing to use the toilet
  • Constipation

Mebeverine will help your gut and intestines return to a more natural rhythm and allow you to take pleasure in eating again. IBS disrupts your body’s natural rhythm, so it’s important to try to get back into balance to relieve symptoms and stress,. 

Some foods and drinks can make your IBS worse, like fizzy drinks and sugar, so it’s important that you also look into lifestyle changes as well as taking pharmaceutical IBS treatments like these tablets.

Mebeverine will not impact your ability to drive is not affected by the consumption of alcohol. Mebeverine tablets do however contain lactose, so check with your doctor before taking them if you’re lactose-intolerant. 

It’s very easy to order your IBS treatment online after a brief consultation with our UK-based Online Doctor service.

One tablet of Mebeverine should be taken up to three times a day, ideally around 20 minutes before your usual main meals. Swallow each tablet with plenty of water – do not chew them.

Never exceed the recommended daily dose.

Unless you have been specifically advised by your doctor, only take Mebeverine when needed. This means that you should only take it once your symptoms begin to flare up, and stop taking it when they subside. This can take a couple of weeks.

If your symptoms have not improved after two weeks, or if they get worse, you should stop using Mebeverine and contact your doctor.

There are no known medications that might interfere with Mebeverine; however you should always inform your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking anything else, including store bought and herbal remedies.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the side effects of Mebeverine?

    Like all medicines, taking Mebeverine can cause some side effects. Some patients have reported dizziness or lightheadedness when taking this treatment. An allergic reaction is unlikely, but you may experience some redness, a rash, or itching. Seek medical help if the symptoms persist or get worse. Seek immediate medical help if you experience difficulties breathing or other severe allergic symptoms like the swelling of your face or tongue and hives.

  • How does Mebeverine compare to other IBS treatments like Colofac, Duspatalin, and Buscopan?

    Mebeverine is exactly the same as Colofac as it has the same active ingredient — Colofac is just the same drug manufactured under a different name (brand).  Same goes for Duspatalin (US brand) — it’s just another name for the same drug. Buscopan is slightly different and is made up hyoscine butylbromide (or scopolamine butylbromide) and is used to treat abdominal pain and bladder spasms. As it’s also an antispasmodic, it is not recommended that you take it at the same time as Mebeverine.

  • What does Mebeverine/Colofac do?

    Mebeverine is an antispasmodic which means that it helps to relax the smooth muscle in the gut and control the cramps and painful stomach spasms associated with IBS.

  • Can I use Mebeverine while pregnant or breastfeeding?

    There is little information regarding the use of Mebeverine during pregnancy. Speak to your GP before taking it. It is important to make your GP aware of any gastrointestinal symptoms during your pregnancy.

  • What is the standard Mebeverine dosage?

    The standard tablet dosage is 135mg, to be taken three times a day.

  • What do Mebeverine reviews say about this IBS medicine?

    It tends to be positively reviewed, but it can take a while for IBS patients to find the ideal treatment for them — it can come down to your individual biology and symptoms. It’s important to also consider how lifestyle changes may improve your condition, as tablets can help relieve symptoms, but not ‘cure’ the condition.

  • Can I get Mebeverine and Colofac on the NHS?

    Mebeverine is available on the NHS.

  • What is the best antispasmodic for IBS?

    It depends — everyone has an individual response. There are a few options: Colofac, Alverine (Spansmonal), Peppermint Oil, and Mebeverine, but no ‘right or wrong’ answers. Speak to your doctor and pharmacist to find out which one is best for you.

  • Can Mebeverine help constipation?

    Yes, it can help relieve constipation and blocked stools, though it is more effective at treating this as a symptom of of IBS rather than treating constipation on its own. For constipation that is not a symptom of IBS, see our Constipation section for appropriate treatments.
