I have been taking Mebeverine for some time. It helps with the abdominal pain after eating but not with the bloating I experience. I find I'm worse in the evening, I'm not sure why. I can eat breakfast with no symptoms, lunch varies but dinner is guaranteed to cause bloating and discomfort, and often excruciatingly painful trapped wind under my right rib. Yesterday my doctor suggested I try peppermint capsules instead of Mebeverine and gave me a prescription for them. I'm wondering whether other people have found them helpful? More helpful than Mebeverine? And what else have people been prescribed for bloating and trapped wind? And does anyone know why I'm worse in the evening?
