I've bought some peppermint oil capsules today (Colpermin) but I'm a little confused how to take them. Do you just take them for relief during flare ups or are they intended to be taken regularly in an attempt to stop flare ups altogether? I often go a few weeks or more with no symptoms so I thought they were maybe just intended for use during flare ups? My main symptoms are wind and urgent diarrhoea, occasionally a little bloating and sore stomach.
Does anyone else use them? If so, how? And have you had much success?
