About Spazmole

Myotropic spasmolysants are also traditionally used long ago in gastroenterology for removal of a pain syndrome. Analyzing responses of patients, it is possible to draw a conclusion that most often a pill Spazmol was taken at diseases of a gall bladder, a spastic colitis, gastritises and a peptic ulcer, painful monthly, and some patients — at a headache. Effect of drug was estimated differently, however there are more positive responses.

  • "… Always used burdens - sing, tried spazmol and found out that in the same way works";
  • "… Successfully replaces burdens-pu!";
  • "… Effective, not expensive, quickly kills pain";
  • "… During monthly always the stomach very much hurts, accidentally bought in a drugstore and is very happy";
  • "… Inexpensive analog of Nospanum. Helps me at a headache and always is in my first-aid kit";
  • "… Found out that spazmol helps also at a dentagra".

Some note that mebeverin is more effective and seldom causes system side reactions, does not give atropinopodobny effects. Besides, the release form providing the prolonged action is had.

For receiving the greatest effect all drugs weakening smooth muscles of bodies of a gastrointestinal tract (which treats and spazmol), it is recommended to accept on an empty stomach. It should be noted lack of selectivity of effect at this drug (in other, as well as at all myotropic spasmolysants which affects all smooth muscles) and ability to cause hypomotor dyskinesia and hypotonia of sphincters of a digestive tract at prolonged use. It is necessary to remember that reception of this drug in high doses can be followed by expansion of brain vessels, reduction of the general peripheric resistance, decrease in the system ABP. Therefore it is necessary to apply it in the therapeutic doses which are not influencing indicators of the central hemodynamics and it is short-term (situationally, or from 5 to 14 days).
