What is Buscopan?
The active ingredient in Buscopan is Hyoscine Butylbromide which is derived from the purified extract of the Australian native Duboisia Bush, grown and harvested in Kingaroy, Queensland. Hyoscine Butylbromide is one of the family of drugs known as antispasmodics. As the name suggests, these drugs suppress and relieve spasms and cramping of the stomach muscles.
What makes Buscopan so effective in relieving stomach pain is its targeted effect. Rather than simply masking the pain, like an analgesic, Buscopan acts on the cause of the pain: the muscles cramping.

Buscopan is a medicine which relieves stomach-ache and pain due to cramps and spasm by helping the muscles of the digective system to relax.
