Hello, I was diagnosed with IBS 7 years ago and have been taking Mebeverine (3 X daily) ever since and have always thought it helped me. However, earlier this year I started to get acid reflux too. I have now been told that Mebeverine causes half of your bowel to stay in spasm, therefore relieving the trots but causing a 'misalignment' and this is whats then causing the acid reflux. Has anybody else heard this? I've had an awful year with my IBS/acid reflux and reacted so terribly to the medication given to me by my GP for the acid reflux that I am weaning myself off it. The thought that the mebeverine could be making me more ill is scaring me so much! I'm so confused! Please help.....
