What are Colpermin capsules?

Colpermin capsules are an antispasmodic medication used to treat the symptoms of IBS. They have the effect of relieving cramps and spasms of the large bowel.

One of the ingredients in Colpermin capsules is arachis oil (peanut oil), meaning this product isn’t suitable for anyone with a peanut or soya allergy.

How do Colpermin capsules work?

Colpermin capsules contain peppermint oil, which works to relax the bowel wall and relieve spasms. This in turn eases the pain caused by cramping and helps any gas that may have been bloating the abdomen to disperse and move through the body. According to the IBS Network, peppermint oil also helps to cover the bad smell that comes with the gas. 

How do you take Colpermin capsules?

Colpermin should be taken as directed by your doctor or pharmacist. The dose for adults and children aged 15 or over is 1 capsule 3 times a day. If symptoms are very severe, two capsules can be taken three times a day.

The capsules shouldn’t be taken with food and they shouldn’t be chewed or broken before swallowing. Colpermin also shouldn’t be taken alongside other indigestion remedies as they can damage the capsules.

How effective are Colpermin capsules?

Colpermin capsules are an effective way of easing abdominal cramps and spasms. Other ways of managing IBS symptoms may include:

  • Drinking enough water
  • Eating regular meals
  • Eating slowly
  • Exercising regularly

The capsules should be taken until symptoms have resolved, which is usually in one to two weeks. If symptoms persist, Colpermin can be taken for longer periods of two to three months.

What are the side effects of Colpermin capsules?

Like all medicines, Colpermin capsules can cause side effects, although not everyone will experience them. The most common side effects are:

  • Allergic reactions to peppermint oil or menthol, such as a rash, headache, slow pulse, loss of coordination or shaking.
  • Heartburn and acid reflux. If you already suffer from heartburn and it worsens after taking Colpermin, treatment should be discontinued.
  • Nausea and vomiting.

For more information, please see the patient information leaflet. You can also use the MHRA’s Yellow Card Scheme to report any side effects you experience.
