When is the best time to take Buscopan?

>The best time to take Buscopan is when you have abdominal pain or discomfort. Buscopan works by relaxing the smooth muscle in your gut, which can help to relieve pain and cramping. However, it is important to note that Buscopan is not a laxative and will not relieve constipation. If you are constipated, you should speak to your doctor about other treatments.

How long does it take Buscopan to work?

Buscopan usually starts to work within 20-30 minutes after taking it. However, it may take up to 2 hours for the full effect of the medication to be felt. If your pain or discomfort does not improve after taking Buscopan, speak to your doctor.

Is this medication suited for me?

Please get in touch with a doctor if you are unsure what medication is suitable for you. You can also complete our online consultation form to check your eligibility for the product.

All our medication is packaged in plain confidential padded white or brown envelopes. This ensures that your orders are discreet, and the content of the orders will be for your eyes only.

Is Buscopan good for bloating?

There is limited evidence to suggest that Buscopan can help to relieve bloating. However, more research is needed in this area. If you are experiencing bloating, you should speak to your doctor about other treatments that may be more effective.

Can I take Buscopan while pregnant?

There is limited evidence to suggest that Buscopan is safe to take during pregnancy. However, more research is needed in this area. If you are pregnant and experience abdominal pain or discomfort, speak to your doctor about other treatments that may be more appropriate.
