Colofac IBS 15 Tablets
Colofac IBS is one of a group of medicines called antispasmodics, which are used to treat the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This is a very common condition which causes spasm and pain in the gut or intestine.The intestine is a long muscular tube. The tube squeezes rhythmically so that food can pass down it to be digested. If the intestine goes into spasm and squeezes too tightly, you get pain, and that is called IBS.
The way antispasmodic medicines work is by relieving the spasm and pain.The main symptoms of IBS include :
Abdominal pain and spasm
A bloated feeling, or wind
Diarrhoea or constipation
Small, hard, pellet-like or ribbon-like stools
Mucus in the stools
You may also notice some changes in your bowel habit when you go to the lavatory.
