What are colpermin capsules used for?Colpermin capsules are used to treat the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). IBS is a complex condition which can initially develop in sufferers between the ages of 20 and 30. It is identified as a functional disorder of the large intestine which affects the digestive system and can have an impact on daily life in severe cases.
How is IBS diagnosed?Diagnosis is based on recognising symptoms which are commonly experienced by IBS patients such as; stomach cramps, bloating and swelling of the stomach, gas, passing mucus, constipation and / or diarrhoea. IBS can be managed by altering diet and lifestyle accordingly to minimise the effects of the identified triggers. Colpermin relaxes the intestinal muscles to naturally relieve the symptoms of IBS and also helps to disperse the pockets of gas which cause bloating and discomfort.
What causes IBS?No clear cause of IBS has been identified as the reason for the condition is not fully understood, although there are various possible triggers recognised as leading to IBS symptoms arising.
Is there a cure for IBS?There is no cure for IBS, although treatment with Colpermin will reduce the symptoms and minimise the effect IBS has on daily life.
