Hi all
I have had UC for many years and now just yesterday after a colonoscopy, I am told that my UC is not active right now but that I also have IBS which give me all the symptoms that made me think I was flaring up.  I was given a prescribtion for Bucospan (for spasms). 
My questions are:
   1. Anyone having success with this med ?
   2. Does anyone find it does NOT help ?
   3. Does anyone know of another similar med which would give the same results or better 
       than Bucospan ?
My plan here in Canada does not cover this med, but I am wondering if anything similar might be available and covered !
tyvm in advance for all the help !
male Dx = UC 1987
       now also Dx = IBS 2008

Apparantly it is not used in the US except for horses. I read that it had been approved for that. Don't know about for people. There are plenty of other antispasm drugs that are generic that I am sure your Doctor could try inestead of something that is not generic. It is a sedative like action on the gut. Call and ask or talk to pharmacist and they can advise you. There are several here in the US generic and I am sure there as well.
