Drugs used in functional intenstinal disorders
Platyphylline is a natural alkaloid that has an antimuscarinic action. Compared to atropine, it has less impact on peripheral muscarinic receptors (its antispasmodic effect on the gastrointestinal smooth muscle cells and the iris sphincter muscle is 5-10 times weaker than that of atropine).
As a part of combination therapy: gastroduodenitis, functional dyspepsia, pylorospasm, cholecystitis, cholelithiasis, intestinal colic, renal colic, biliary colic. Bronchial asthma (for bronchospasm prevention), bronchorrhea. Dysmenorrhea. Cerebral arterial spasm. Vasomotor trophic neurosis.
For subcutaneous use.
1–2 ml of the solution should be administered 1–2 times daily to adults and children aged over 15 years to relieve spastic pain, prolonged attacks of bronchial asthma, cerebral and peripheral vasospasms.
In a treatment course, 1–2 ml should be administered subcutaneously 1–2 times daily for 10–15–20 days.
Single and daily dose. The frequency of administration is determined on an individual basis by the physician depending on the indications and the patient`s age.
