Subsequently, one may also ask, can Fybogel cause weight gain?
No, mebeverine does not have a laxative effect when taken on its own. However, you can get a combination of mebeverine with ispaghula husk (brand name Fybogel Mebeverine). No, mebeverine does not cause you to lose or gain weight.
In this regard, how quickly does Fybogel work?
Fybogel is a high-fibre drink that you take in the morning and evening, preferably after a meal. Fybogel takes 2 or 3 days to work. When taking this type of laxative, make sure you drink plenty of fluids. The main side effects are wind and bloating.
Overdose with ispaghula husk may cause abdominal discomfort, flatulence and intestinal obstruction. Adequate fluid intake should be maintained, particularly if the granules have been taken without water contrary to administration instructions, and management should be symptomatic.
