Thanks for using XXXXXXX
I usually give PREPRO HS capsule to my patients with IBS.
I give it twice daily after food.
They can be used for long term.But,they are stopped usually after beneficial effects are seen.
I stop the drug once the symptoms are relieved.
Hope i answered your query.
Wish you good health
