Description

Sparex Pharmacodynamics
A myotropic antispasmodic, it has a direct effect on the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract without affecting normal intestinal peristalsis.
The exact mechanism of action is unknown, but multiple mechanisms, such as reduction of ion channel permeability, blockade of norepinephrine reuptake, local anesthetic action, and changes in water absorption may cause local action of mebeverine on the gastrointestinal tract. Through these mechanisms, mebeverine exhibits an antispasmodic effect, normalizing intestinal peristalsis and not causing permanent relaxation of gastrointestinal smooth muscle cells (“hypotonia”).
There are no systemic side effects, including anticholinergic.

 

Indications
Symptomatic treatment of pain, cramps, dysfunction and discomfort in the bowel area associated with irritable bowel syndrome.
Symptoms may include: abdominal pain, cramps, bloating and flatulence, stool frequency changes (diarrhoea, constipation or alternation of diarrhoea and constipation), changes in stool consistency.

 

Contraindications
– Hypersensitivity to any component of the drug;
– Age under 18 years;
– Congenital intolerance to galactose (lactose) or fructose, lactase deficiency, sugar/isomaltase deficiency, glucose-galactose malabsorption syndrome;

Use in pregnancy and during breast-feeding:
Pregnancy .
There are only very limited data on the use of mebeverine in pregnant women. Data from animal studies are insufficient to assess reproductive toxicity. The use of mebeverine during pregnancy is not recommended.
Breastfeeding period
There is insufficient information on the excretion of mebeverine or its metabolites into breast milk. Studies on the excretion of mebeverine into milk in animals have not been conducted. Mebeverin should not be taken while breastfeeding.
Fertility
There are no clinical data on the effect of the drug on fertility in men or women, but known animal studies have not demonstrated adverse effects of mebeverine.
