Has anyone tried this. Been taking it two days and doesn’t seem to help. In fact I think the pain is worse.
Colofac/Mebeverine: Has anyone tried this. Been... - IBS Network
I found Mebeverine took me from one extreme to the other and felt horrible on it! I do wonder if it’s a case of adjusting as you’re 2 days in, but I eventually took myself off it and focused on lifestyle changes.
I now keep it for emergencies.
I hope you find something that works for you!
Its an antispasmodic, think you should be taking it 3 times day.
So maybe your pain is caused by something else?
I’m currently on this, been taking for 1 month now (3 times a day before meals). I felt horrible the 1st week (cramps, bloat) but eventually work for me on the end of 2nd week!
hi the doctor put me on them aswell it worked at first them felt it didnt ..so now I'm in peppermint capsules they help a lot with the trapped wind pain and I'm going regular to toilet .and the bloating you take 1 hour b4 food 3 times a day I only take 2 cause felt the 3 a day was making me have diarohha..hope this helps
hope they work for you aswell 😁
I am on Mebeverine and started in January. I had three blissful months of feeling normal, then at the beginning of May everything went back to the way it was. No diet changes, so I've no idea why they seemed to stop working. GP and consultant have asked me to keep taking them, along with Fybogel. The jury is out.
Hope they work for you.
Does fibre gel help with pain or just constipation. I’ve only got pain!
I’m sick of the pain it is relentless. Wakes me up in night sometimes. I think it is wind.
My son took Colofac/Mebeverine for years and it had minimal effect. I buy him Colpermin (peppermint based) which he has been taking for a couple of years now and he has far less flares .......... majority of his flares now are what you might call self inflicted 😉
I took this for 5 weeks,and I ended up coming off it, it gave me cramps and terrible gas.
I tried a over the counter med called, silicol gel, it was a game changer for me.
Not what you're looking for?
