Your child’s medicine at a glance

Meftal-Spas Suspension is commonly given to treat stomach pain, bloating, and abdominal cramps, and pain associated with excessive acidity, gas, infections, and gastrointestinal tract diseases. It also controls symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. It relaxes the muscles of the gut and absorbs the extra gas.

Give the prescribed dose of Meftal-Spas Suspension to your child orally before a meal or as suggested by the doctor. Your child’s doctor may prescribe this medicine for a few days to many days. But, do not continue it for more than 2 weeks without consulting the doctor as excessive and long-term use may have adverse effects on your child. Additionally, do not abruptly stop the medicine by yourself as it may bring back the symptoms or worsen your child’s condition.

Some of the common yet temporary side effects of this medicine include nausea, vomiting, constipation, burping, vision problem, loss of appetite, and drowsiness. These usually subside once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. However, if these side effects persist or become bothersome for your child, do reach out to the doctor on a priority basis.

You must let your child’s doctor know about all the medicines your child is being given. Also, inform the doctor of any previous history of allergy, intolerance to any food products, abdominal obstruction, liver impairment, kidney malfunction, or any birth defects, This information is very important for dose alterations and for planning your child’s overall treatment.

This can lead to bleeding, frequent diarrhea, bloating, flatulence, cramps, and stomach pain. Meftal-Spas Suspension relaxes the muscles in your stomach and gut (intestine) and relieves these symptoms effectively.

Quick tips

  • Inform your doctor if you experience severe or long-lasting pain in your stomach.
  • Give your child a diet that is rich in fiber and low in fermentable sugars.
  • Avoid giving gas-producing foods to your child such as beans, onions, carrots, raisins, and bananas.
  • Encourage your child to exercise daily as it has potential benefits in constipation and in improving overall wellbeing.
  • In children less than 2 months of age, do not give Meftal-Spas Suspension without ruling out the reasons that might be making your child cry. Give Meftal-Spas Suspension only if your child shows actual signs of abdominal discomfort or pain after consulting your child’s doctor.
  • Children may experience abdominal pain due to migraines. The other associated symptoms can be a headache, nausea, anorexia vomiting, and pallor. Since Meftal-Spas Suspension is strictly for abdominal pain, rule out such types of pain before giving this medicine.
