Buscopan Cramps is a tablet that contains a trusted active ingredient called hyoscine butylbromide, which has an anti-spasmodic action that relaxes the spasm in the digestive tract to ease pain and discomfort of stomach cramps. Unlike painkillers which mask the pain, Buscopan Cramps works directly on the cause of pain - the spasm in the gut -to provide effective relief. This active ingredient is derived from natural substances in the leaves of the Duboisia plant (commonly called Corkwood Tree). About Abdominal Cramps Buscopan Cramps is a remedy for stomach cramps caused by the muscle in your digestive tract going into spasm, when triggered by stress, lifestyle changes or eating certain foods. Abdominal cramps are extremely common; around 40 per cent of people have suffered from stomach cramps at some point. They are very different from period pain or a tummy ache, pain from indigestion or heartburn and are a direct result of muscle spasm in your gut. The entire digestive tract is very sensitive and a variety of diet and lifestyle factors, including eating a food that doesn't agree with you, or a stressful event, can aggravate the movement of the smooth muscle action of the digestive tract. A spasm can be triggered by diet or lifestyle changes, food allergies or intolerances, hormonal factors or stress. Stomach cramps may occur alongside other symptoms such as constipation and/or diarrhoea and abdominal bloating, excessive wind, headache, poor appetite, nausea and bladder problems. FAQs Q. What causes my stomach cramps in the first place? A. What usually happens is that a particular trigger causes the bowel muscles to squeeze more vigorously than usual. Examples of such prompts are certain foods and drinks, or stress and anxiety, and this then starts the typical symptoms of intermittent sharp, stabbing abdominal pain. Q. What are the usual symptoms? A. These are usually described as "intense", "sharp" or "stabbing" pains in the stomach or abdomen. These symptoms can last seconds or hours depending on their severity. They can come and go, but with a background of dull constant pain. There may also be associated bloating, increased wind, nausea and sometimes diarrhoea or constipation. Q. How should stomach cramps be treated? A. There are a range of lifestyle measures you can take to relieve your symptoms. Regular exercise, stress reduction and avoiding foods or drinks that seem to make the cramps worse are always recommended. Many people find that they can also easily manage their symptoms using a pharmacy treatment. However, only some remedies actually treat the cause of the problem. Products that are specially developed to effectively treat the spasms, like antispasmodics such as Buscopan Cramps are best suited.
