How Alspas Forte Tablet works

Alspas Forte Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Chlordiazepoxide and Clidinium. Chlordiazepoxide is a benzodiazepine. It works by increasing the action of GABA, a chemical messenger which suppresses the abnormal and excessive activity of the nerve cells in the brain. Clidinium works by relaxing the muscles in your stomach and gut (intestine). It stops sudden muscle contractions (spasms) which in turn relieves cramps, pain, bloating, and discomfort.

I've been suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome for 4 years. Morning one episode of watery diarrhea after breakfast. I consulted a doctor and he gave me Ramosetron Hydrochloride 5mcg and advised to use half of the Tablet at night before food and I got temporary cure. But after when I stop the Tablet the problem is recurring so I request you to suggest some better remedy for this condition. And can continue with the same Tab I used?. Is it good for a long term use?. Is there any severe side effect with the Tab? Thanking You, PATIENT
