Product Information

Colpermin capsules can only be supplied if your doctor has said that you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Colpermin is an antispasmodic which is used to relieve the bloating, painful spasms and cramps which occur in the large bowel in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The capsules contain peppermint oil, which relaxes the spasm of the bowel wall. This relieves pain and allows pockets of gas, which may have made you feel bloated, to pass along the bowel and out of the body. 

IBS is a condition in which there is pain, spasm and bloating at almost any point between the groin, the navel and the sides, sometimes accompanied by diarrhoea and constipation. The symptoms may be more noticeable when you are feeling stressed and anxious. This medicine is suitable for most people but a few people should not use it. If you are in any doubt, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Do not take this medicine:

  • If you are allergic to peppermint oil, or any of the other ingredients of this medicine.
  • If you are allergic to peanuts or soya.
