About Senocalm IBS Relief
  1. What is Senocalm?

    Senocalm IBS Relief & Prevention tablets contain peppermint oil, a natural extract that helps to relieve bloating and stomach pain, it also contains simethicone, an anti-foaming agent used to treat bloating caused by excessive wind. 

    It can also be used to prevent IBS in adults and children over the age of 6, although the dosage will vary depending on how old you are.

    You can buy Senocalm IBS Relief & Prevention tablets without needing a prescription. 

    What is Senocalm used to treat?

    Senocalm IBS Relief & Prevention tablets are used to ease the discomfort and bloating that is caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

    IBS is a relatively common condition that causes stomach spasms and bloating. You will likely feel the effects of irritable bowel syndrome most prominently after eating.

    You may be suffering from IBS if you have any of the following symptoms:

    • Bloating
    • Stomach pain or stomach cramps
    • Constipation
    • Diarrhoea
    • Flatulence

    Why is Senocalm recommended for IBS treatment?

    Clinical studies into peppermint oil have found it to be a very effective and well-tolerated treatment for the symptoms of IBS. 

    Furthermore, the active ingredient in Senocalm, simethicone, has also been found to effectively relieve the trapped wind symptoms of IBS. 

    How does Senocalm work?

    IBS symptoms are commonly caused by trapped wind in the digestive system. About 50% of this gas is swallowed air, while the remaining 50% is produced by bacterial fermentation during the digestion of food.

    Senocalm tablets contain simethicone, which works by causing the gas bubbles to collapse and collect together. Doing this creates larger bubbles that are easier to pass out of the intestines, which allows your body to process gas naturally and easily.

    Also contained in this medicine is peppermint oil, which works to relax the muscles in the gut, relieving the painful stomach cramps that IBS can cause.

    Who can take Senocalm?

    Senocalm is generally considered to be a very safe medicine.

    Senocalm alternatives

    Mebeverine tablets are also available from our online pharmacy. This antispasmodic medicine works to relax the muscles in the gut, relieving the painful spasms that can come with irritable bowel syndrome. You can also order the powdered drink version of this medicine, Fybogel Mebeverine. This product works in the same way as the tablets, but comes as a sweet-tasting orange-flavoured drink; just mix one sachet in a glass of water and drink it for effective relief.

    Buscopan has been a tried and tested medicine to relieve the stomach cramps caused by IBS for many years. Buscopan Cramps provides fast-acting relief from this problem, but it can also be used for other cramping conditions like period pain. If your doctor has diagnosed you with IBS, you could instead order Buscopan IBS Relief tablets from our website.

    A milder medication includes peppermint oil capsules, such as Colpermin or Apercap, both of which can be ordered from our online pharmacy. Peppermint oil works to relax the muscles in the gut gently, alleviating the discomfort that IBS brings.
