Thanks for writing in.

Mebeverine belongs to a group of medicines called as musculotropic antispasmodics. It acts directly on gut muscles and relaxes them.
Common side effects include allergic reactions like urticaria or maculopapular rash. It has not been shown to cause infertility in woman.
This drug is also safe in pregnancy provided it is taken in limited amounts.
I hope I have addressed your concerns. I will be available for follow up queries.

Warm regards.
