Colofac IBS is treatment for relief of the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

IBS is a very common condition which causes spasm and pain in the gut or intestine.
The intestine is a long muscular tube which food passes down so it can be digested. If the intestine goes into spasm and squeezes too tightly, you get pain. The way this medicine works is by relieving the spasm and pain.
The main symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) include:
- Stomach pain and spasm
- Feeling bloated and having wind
- Having diarrhoea (with or without constipation)
- Small, hard, pellet-like or ribbon-like stools (faeces)
- These symptoms may vary from person to person.
