Hi Cap'n,
That is terrible you are worse off taking this med than you are without. Maybe you should stop taking it and call your doc. From my understanding this med is an anti-spasmodic... Is that right? Seems like it is doing the exact opposite of what it is supposed to do. Since there are several anti-spasmodics out on the market, maybe you could talk to your doc about trying another. Sometimes it takes a couple tries before you find one that works.
I hope you feel better real soon...

Yeah, this med is an anti-spasmodic ~ I take it myself. Talk to your doctor about this as it shouldn't cause you more problems. Have you tried buscopan?

my right leg is killing me aswel  especially hip and knee   i had stopped taking mebeverine just over a week before this happened   i complained to doc  listing the side effects from it  then they said it was IBS  so my stomache goes ignored   dont know what to do     think ill wait it out   if its serious something will happen, if its not ill just continue trying to ease it and make sure it doesnt happen in public

thank you for suggestions  will do my best
