Re: buscopan for IBS?

hey just thought i'd let you know, its not an otc drug.. its a prescription med... its an "anti-spasmadic" drug... others, including myself, take different brands of this medicine, ie. donnatal, etc..... these kind of meds can be 'constipating'... so if you're on zelnorm, which is normally for that side of ibs.. i wouldn't recommend it.... however, you might find relief from peppermint tea, a herbal remedy for pain....
