Duspatalin is an effective and relatively safe antispasmodic agent from the group of myotropic antispasmodics. The mechanism of its action consists in relaxing the smooth muscles of the intestine and eliminating spasm and pain caused by their strong stress.

Having a relaxing effect on the muscles of the intestine, and alleviating the pain from their spasms, the drug does not affect the intestinal motility, so there is no delay in promoting the food mass.

The active ingredient of Duspatalin is mebeverine hydrochloride, a substance with an antispasmodic effect.

Duspatalin is used to stop pains of a spasmodic nature and to alleviate the manifestations of spastic conditions of the digestive tract. It is prescribed for irritable bowel syndrome and abnormalities of the digestive system, food and biliary colic, dysfunction of the gallbladder and the condition after its removal caused by this pathology. In addition, Duspatalin effectively eliminates spasms and pain in the gastrointestinal tract, provoked by any other causes, including functional disorders of the digestive system. In particular, the drug helps to eliminate such symptoms as colic, cramps and pain in the abdominal cavity, increased gas formation, flatulence, as well as constipation and diarrhea.

Advantages of Duspatalin

The advantage of Duspatalin is that it eliminates only the increased motor skills without suppressing completely peristaltic contractions of the intestine, so that its normal peristalsis persists after eliminating the excessive activity of smooth muscles. Duspatalin does not cause a reflex decrease in the tone of the intestine.

The essential advantage of the drug is the lack of accumulation in the body of its components, even in the case of prolonged treatment. After taking, entering the intestine and affecting the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract, Duspatalin is absorbed into the blood and enters the liver, where in the process of biochemical transformations it breaks down into metabolites, in the form of which it is excreted from the body, mainly with urine, and alsowith bile.

The drug is usually taken before meals, preferably 20 minutes before the main meals( three times a day), as it alleviates the symptoms, which often worsen after eating food into the gastrointestinal tract.
