What is Buscopan?

Buscopan (Hyoscine) is an Gastrointestinal Treatment medicine that is used to treat pain and discomfort caused by abdominal cramps or other spasmodic activities of the digestive system. When taken orally, it cannot leave the gastrointestinal tract, so it only acts on the smooth muscle of the digestive system. It is not a pain reliever in the normal sense, as it does not "mask" or cover pain, but rather works by preventing cramps and spasms that occur in the first place.

How does it work?

Buscopan Compound has antispasmodic action, acting on painful contractions and relieving abdominal cramps, pain and discomfort quickly and prolonged. It also has an important analgesic property, which reduces the perception of pain. The drug takes effect right after it is taken and its effect lasts for 6 to 8 hours. This medicine is used for smooth muscle relaxation and is especially helpful here since the type of antispasmodic used in Buscopan cramp relief is specifically great for relaxation in the tubular organs of the gastrointestinal tract. Hyoscine works by relaxing the muscles found in the walls of the intestines, stomach, bowel, bile duct, and genito-urinary tract. These muscles, that are called involuntary, contract and relax without our control and normally, one isn’t aware of this happening. Although, when these muscles spasm, it causes pain. This is where the Hyoscine comes into play, relaxing the muscle, reducing the painful cramps.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Buscapina is used for the treatment of spasms of the gastrointestinal tract, spasms and motility disorders (dyskinesias) of the bile ducts and spasms of the genitourinary tract, in adults and children over 6 years of age.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. If in doubt, consult your doctor or pharmacist again. The dose is established based on the intensity of pain and the sensitivity of each person to treatment with Buscapina Compositum. The lowest dose necessary to control pain should always be selected. Your doctor will tell you how you should take Buscapina Compositum.

The administration of the medication is subject to the appearance of painful symptoms and as these disappear the dose should be decreased and the medication should be discontinued.


The recommended dose is 1-2 coated tablets, 3 times a day. The effect of the medicine usually appears between 30 and 60 minutes after oral administration.

Elderly and patients in poor general health / kidney failure:

The dose should be decreased in the elderly, in debilitated patients and in those with decreased kidney function, since the elimination of the degradation products of metamizole may be delayed. Patients with kidney or liver failure

Since the rate of elimination in renal or hepatic impairment decreases, repeated high doses should be avoided. Only in short-term treatments no dose reduction is necessary. There is no experience with prolonged treatments.

It must be administered orally. The tablets should be taken whole, without chewing, with a little liquid.

Buscapina Compositum should not be used for a long period of time or at higher doses without a doctor's prescription.
