What Colofac Tablets 135 mg are and what they are used for
Colofac IBS Tablets 135 mg contain Mebeverine hydrochloride. This belongs to a group of medicines called antispasmodics.
This medicine is used to treat symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and similar problems such as chronic irritable colon, spastic constipation, mucous colitis and spastic colitis.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a very common condition which causes spasm and pain in the gut or intestine.
The intestine is a long muscular tube which food passes down so it can be digested. If the intestine goes into spasm and squeezes too tightly, you get pain. The way this medicine works is by relieving the spasm, pain and other symptoms of IBS.
The main symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) include:
stomach pain and spasm
feeling bloated and having wind
having diarrhoea (with or without constipation)
small, hard, pellet-like or ribbon-like stools (faeces)
These symptoms may vary from person to person.
Talk to your doctor if these symptoms do not improve after a while, if you develop new symptoms or you are concerned about your symptoms.

IBS is a common condition that affects the digestive system.
It causes symptoms like stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. These tend to come and go over time, and can last for days, weeks or months at a time and is usually a lifelong problem.
There’s no cure, but diet changes and medicines can often help control the symptoms.
The exact cause is unknown – it’s been linked to things like food passing through your gut too quickly or too slowly, oversensitive nerves in your gut, stress, and a family history of IBS.
