Spasmonet Pharmacodynamics
A myotropic antispasmodic, similar in chemical structure and pharmacological properties to papaverine, but with a stronger and longer action. It reduces the flow of calcium ions into the smooth muscle cells. Reduces smooth muscle tone of internal organs and intestinal peristalsis, dilates blood vessels. Does not affect vegetative nervous system, does not penetrate into CNS. Its direct effect on smooth muscles allows to use it as an antispasmodic when drugs from the group of m-cholinoblockers are contraindicated (closed-angle glaucoma, prostatic hyperplasia).
