Why should I use

Antispasmodics vs. Analgesics

  • Buscopan® is an antispasmodic and acts only in the abdomen directly targeting and relieving the cause of abdominal pain
  • Buscopan® is well tolerated and very little is absorbed into the bloodstream
  • Many analgesics (painkillers) act by reducing the pain awareness by blocking the pain signals in the brain, thereby relieving the pain without tackling the cause
  • Therefore analgesics work in a more general way on the whole body and are absorbed into the bloodstream

Target relief

  • Buscopan® relaxes the muscle spasm acting only in the abdomen where the pain and cramps occur

Fast onset of action:

  • Buscopan® starts to work within just 15 minutes

Gentle on the stomach

  • Buscopan® is gentle on the stomach and can be taken at the first sign of abdominal pain and discomfort
