Every month about a week before my period is due to start I always feel terribly bloated and swollen in my tummy. This inevitably makes me feel bad tempered as all my clothes get tight and uncomfortable. My sister has used Aquaban before and swears by it so I thought i'd give it a try.
I bought it from Lloyds pharamcy and it cost me £3.45 for a box of 30 tablets. The information on the box states that Aquaban is designed to help eliminate excess water. The box is a very simple design. Blue and white and the tablets themselves are a nice size. I had no trouble trying to swallow them and they had no aftertaste to them.
Each tablet contains 2 diuretics that help to get rid of water and the ingredients in each tablet are:
Ammonium Chloride BP325mg
Caffeine Anhydrous BP100mg
They are only suitable for women suffering from pre-menstrual bloating. They mustn't be used to eliminate regular bloating. Also they are only to be used by women 16 years and over.
The directions are for 2 tablets to be taken 3 times a day, after a meal. Start taking them 4-5 days before your period is due to start and stop as soon as it has started.
I was a little dubious about them, I didn't think I would see much difference but I was wrong. By the end of the first day of taking them my stomach was slightly less swollen and didn't feel as tender as it normally does. The second day I was able to wear my jeans without them feeling tight and I found that as a result I was a lot more cheerful! These tablets definately helped to reduce my bloating and I found that my stomach was almost the same as at any other time of the month. By the time my period had started I had sufered virtually no problems. I also had lost 2 lbs that week at my slimming world class whereas norally my time of the month sees me staying the same or gaining a lb. An extra bonus!
The only down side to these tablets is that I find that I need to use the loo a lot! I guess that it is a way of eliminating the water and I would much rather weeing a lot than having to suffer the painful bloating for a couple of days.
I can't praise these tablets enough. They are a good price and show great results. 5 out of 5.
Summary: 5 out of 5
