Relieve the cramp, relieve the pain
After being swallowed, the Buscopan® tablet moves down the digestive tract. There, Buscopan® interrupts the signal that tells the gastro-intestinal muscles to cramp. The muscles can relax, the pain subsides, and the digestive process can return to normal.
Buscopan® Tablets have an antispasmodic action that specifically targets the source of abdominal cramping or the pain and discomfort associated with IBS. They start to work within 15 minutes, acting directly on the muscle spasm in the bowel to quickly and effectively relieve painful cramps and discomfort. Buscopan can be used at the first sign of a flare-up as needed as very little is absorbed into the bloodstream. It is also unlikely to cause any side effects such as drowsiness.
Buscopan® is trusted by people in more than 50 countries worldwide to provide fast and effective relief from abdominal cramps, pain and discomfort, including those associated with IBS.
Buscopan® was first developed over 60 years ago and the active ingredient hyoscine butylbromide is derived from the natural duboisia plant.
