About

What is Colofac?

Colofac is a brand name for the drug Mebeverine, which is used to alleviate the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). While the exact cause of IBS is not always known, it is often related to abnormal muscle contraction or inflammation in the intestine. This can be triggered by stress, hormones or even some foods, and common symptoms of IBS include stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea or constipation.

How does Colofac work?

Colofac contains mebeverine hydrochloride, a type of medicine known as an antispasmodic. It works by relaxing the muscle wall of the intestine, preventing irregular muscle spasms and relieving symptoms such as cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation.

How long does Colofac take to work?

Most people who suffer with IBS experience regular flare ups rather than constant symptoms. Unless otherwise advised by a doctor, it is best to take Colofac when needed (during a flare up) rather than all the time. For best results, take one tablet about 20 minutes before a meal, but no more than 3 times per day. Colofac aims to clear up the symptoms of IBS within 2 weeks. If your symptoms continue for longer than 2 weeks, speak to your doctor for advice.

Treatment Options

Alternatives to Colofac

The active ingredient in Colofac, mebeverine hydrochloride, is also available in the form of dispersible sachets sold under the name Fybogel Mebeverine. This medication also includes the active ingredient ispaghula husk, which is a natural prebiotic that promotes the growth of healthy probiotics in the gut and a mild laxative. Colpermin capsules contain peppermint oil, which acts as a natural spasmodic, and are an effective alternative to Colofac. It is of note that Colpermin capsules also contain peanut oil and are therefore unsuitable for use in patients with a peanut allergy.
