Buscopan IBS Relief Tablets provide effective stomach pain relief. It was first developed over 50 years ago, to provide stomach pain relief to people suffering with abdominal pain and discomfort due to cramps of the gastro-intestinal tract. It is now the most popular selling antispasmodic treatment worldwide, sold in more than 50 countries around the world. Buscopan IBS Relief tablets contain the active ingredient Hyoscine Butylbromide, which is derived from natural hyoscine, extracted from the duboisia plant. Hyoscine butylbromide is from a family of drugs known as antispasmodics.
After being swallowed, Buscopan IBS Relief Tablets move slowly down the digestive tract. But because of its particular pharmacological properties, very little enters the blood stream and it mostly stays in the gastro-intestinal system. Buscopan IBS Relief Tablets interrupts the cramp signal from the brain which helps the muscles to relax, thus allowing the pain to fade and the digestive processes to return to normal.
