About Buscopan

What Buscopan is used for

BUSCOPAN tablets are used for the relief of smooth muscle spasm (cramps) of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary system.

BUSCOPAN ampoules are used for relief of acute genitourinary or gastrointestinal spasm, or to produce smooth muscle relaxation prior to radiological procedures where spasm may be a problem.

What Buscopan does

Stomach cramps are caused by sudden, irregular tightening up of muscles in the wall of the intestine. BUSCOPAN works by relaxing the tight muscles, so relieving the cramps.
