Meberverine Tablets made my symptoms worse

Hi, I'm 39, female, vegetarian. Had IBS for about 7 years - started following a nasty divorce and a sickness bug. Hadn't been to the Drs about it until this week as I found I could manage it on my own. However, I've just been diagnosed with moderate to severe depression and stress and the IBS has worsened significantly. Dr prescribed me the tablets and I took one half an hour before tea (high fibre meal involving alot of chickpeas and cous cous). Within an hour my stomach was somersaulting and I couldn't get up off the sofa because of the discomfort and zero energy levels. I was up all night with severe stomach cramps. This was much worse than I had experienced before.Either this is simply an unfortunate coincidence or it is a side effect. It's not listed as a side effect and my pharmacist didn't think it likely. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm scared to take them again.I'd love to hear anyone's opinion on this.

Welcome greenqueen!Have you consulted with your doctor about these side effects? It's always good to keep them informed of how you are doing especially if you have unexpected side effects like you have described. Best to let the doctor work with you than trying to sort this out yourself since they may have seen these same symptoms in other patients.Jeff
