Also,i don't know *why*,the others peppermint products *dosen't* do the same magic.IT MUST BE THAT COLPERMINT IS STRONGER.ALSO IT CAN IRRITATE THE ANUS.THAT'S THE ONLY SIDE EFFECT REALLY(OTHER THAN FEELING MINTED
)THIS PRODUCT WORKS EXTREMLY WELL FOR TRAPPED GAS.IF MY ASS IS IRRITATED TOMORROW,I WILL STOP FOR FEW DAYS.

Hi Spas so glad you found something to help! I actually did try colpermin back in the mid 80's. a friend brought some back from the uk for me although i do think i found later you could get it in the states back then too. it didn't help me unfortunately but thanks for mentioning it because it's worth a try for others. enteric coated peppermint is supposed to be superior to the other forms of peppermint.

As far as i know,there is nothing who works like Colpermin(i don't know what is Pepogest tho).At least they did some research on IBS.What i can tell you for sure is that when i take it,i get many hours of relief and motility activation.As for the heat sensation,it may happen a little more(especially lower belly)but it's still worthed for many hours of relief.Again,you may want to take it especially if you about to throw up coz it promote gastric emptying and appetite.Whithin few minutes,your stomack/duodenum activate digestion.I'm not kidding,it rescussitate appetite.

SpAsMaN,I think I remember you telling me that you are a (or were) a dulcolax user. Are you not having to use dulcolax anymore now?It sounds promising but unfortunately I alreay get heartburn from eating a mint.. not sure if this would cause heartburn as well. I do not have any appetite problems either
but I would take that side effect if it could replace zelnorm and dulcolax.Let me know and please keep us posted on your progress
So glad to hear this is working so well for you!!

As i said the first 6-12 hours after i took one Colpermin was wonderful comparing to my normal state.Now i somewhat feel some rebound effect but as i said,these 6-12 hours feeling "normal" was so worthed.It's something you need to have in your drug basket for emergency.You could take it if you go eating with friends etc..

I feel quite irritated down there today.It sucks coz i DID felt good at the beginning.It's like my lower gut it's too irritated to handle Colpermin.This morning i had extrem gas from eating maple syrup yesterday.

Hi SpAsMan, I too have had serious releif from trapped gas by taking enteric coated peepermint, although I've never tried Colpermin specifically. Don't give up on it - maybe just try taking it less often. I find as little as one tablet (0.2 mL) per day is enough. Linda
