Mebeverine is a medication commonly prescribed for the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and certain gastrointestinal conditions. While it can be beneficial in treating IBS symptoms, it’s essential to be aware of potential side effects for safe and effective use. 

Common Side Effects of Mebeverine

Mebeverine is generally well-tolerated, and most of the common side effects reported are mild and tend to pass very quickly.

These include, but are not limited to:


For mild allergic reactions like skin rashes or itching, a topical antihistamine can be used to alleviate the symptoms.

However, if any side effects persist, worsen, or cause concern, you should consult with your doctor or pharmacist for further advice.

For a full list of side effects, please see the leaflet inside your medicine packaging. 

Severe Allergic Reactions (Anaphylaxis) – call 999 now

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Swelling of the face or throat
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Severe chest pain
  • Feeling of impending doom
  • Drop in blood pressure

If you experience any of these symptoms after taking Mebeverine or any other medication, do not hesitate. Dial emergency services by calling 999 immediately. Timely intervention is crucial in managing anaphylaxis, and receiving prompt medical care can be life-saving.
