MEBEVERINE+CHLORDIAZEPOXIDE belongs to a class of drugs called 'antispasmodics' primarily used to treat painful stomach cramps in the condition of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) with bloating. Irritable bowel syndrome is a common disease that affects the large intestine. IBS is also known as spastic colon, irritable colon, spastic colitis, and mucous colitis. An irritable bowel syndrome is a group of intestinal symptoms that occur together.
MEBEVERINE+CHLORDIAZEPOXIDE is a combination of two drugs: Mebeverine (antispasmodic) and Chlordiazepoxide (benzodiazepine). Mebeverine works by relaxing the intestinal muscles wall, thereby providing relief from painful muscle spasms. On the other hand, Chlordiazepoxide works by increasing a chemical messenger known as GABA (nerve-calming agent) activity in the brain, thereby decreasing nerve cells' abnormal activity. Thus, together it relaxes intestinal muscles, reduces stomach pain caused by spasm, cramps, gas formation, bloating, and minimizes anxiety level caused due to stomach discomfort.
