There are a number of effective ways to reduce or even eliminate the pain of abdominal cramps. Naturally, prevention is better than cure: if possible, avoid foods and drinks that you know will trigger an attack, and try to minimise the effects of stress on your digestion. However, for those times when pain strikes, it's good to know there are proven and safe treatments.
For milder pain, many people find that simply lying down and resting is very helpful. Warmth, such as from a hot water bottle, helps increase the circulation to the abdomen and relax cramped muscles. Caffeine-free tea, acupressure and other treatments can be remarkably effective. You can learn more about home remedies in the Advice section of this website.
Buscopan® is an effective and well-tolerated treatment for abdominal cramps, pain and discomfort. Its effect is targeted precisely to the cause of the pain: the cramps themselves. By relaxing the cramped muscles, Buscopan® effectively relieves abdominal pain and cramps.
If no effects are seen with Buscopan® within several days, it is important that you see your doctor or other health professional. He or she may prescribe medication to treat your condition, or recommend a suitable diet and/or exercise plan.
