Has anybody tried nefpam for IBS pain? My GP has just prescribed them but I'm worried about nausea/vomiting. I've tried all kinds, pregagbin, mitazapine, amitriptyline, tramadol(makes me vomit), nothing seems to take away the constant pain

Does it make you feel sick or vomit?

Sorry for all the questions but how long have been taking it and what dose are you on

I've been on it about 6 years and take 3 tablets 3 times a day.

Thanks for replying

You tried Zapain? I've been taking it for years.

Thanks, but I can't take codeine

I take them for other pain. No side effects. However, whenever I feel nausea (not ibs related) I eat 3 ginger biscuits. Works every time

Do they work for you? They haven't done much for me up to now

Yea. The tablets work for the pain I experience. The ginger biscuits definitely help nausea.There's also something I'm going to check out. There's an article on Google 'What the NHS don't tell you about IBS', which states the the NHS does not test the gut for other causes. I intend phoning them but I guess it will be expensive. But as the saying goes you can't put a price on health.
