Anticholinergics - Drug

Types of Drugs:

Medicines used to treat stomach and intestinal disorders; anticholinergic; antispasmodic.

How Drugs Work:

These drugs inhibit the action of the nerves in the smooth muscles, secretory glands and central nervous system. They slow down certain activities of the stomach and intestines and reduce cramps, reduce secretion (acids, enzymes, etc.) of the stomach and intestines, relax the bladder (reduce spasms) and accelerate closure of the sphincter valve (this may result in retention of urine). They also slow or increase heart rate, block sweating (increase body temperature), reduce salivary gland secretion (cause dry mouth), enlarge pupils and reduce eye's ability to focus.

Uses;

To treat peptic ulcer.

To treat diarrhea.

To treat large bowel syndrome (spastic colon).

To treat irritation or inflammation of the stomach and intestines (eg colitis).

To treat baby colic.

To treat gall bladder and urinary tract.

To treat frequent urination and bedwetting problems. To reduce symptoms of runny or congested nose.

Exposure to Heat: These medicines can reduce sweating if you are exposed to hot weather. This can cause hot kneeling, fever and heat.

Diarrhea can be an early symptom of an incomplete bowel obstruction. Check with your doctor or pharmacist for diarrhea with this medicine.

Contact Usage Lens: This product can cause dry eye. Contact lens wearers should use the appropriate lubricant solution when taking this product.

Anticholinergic psychosis has been reported in sensitive individuals given anticholinergic drugs. Symptoms and symptoms of the CNS include confusion, confusion, short-term memory loss, hallucinations, poor speech, coordination, coma, excessive well-being, decreased anxiety, fatigue, inability, anxiety and inappropriate influences. These CNS symptoms and symptoms usually resolve within 12 to 24 hours after discontinuation.

Pregnancy: Studies in pregnant women or animals have shown no risk to the fetus in patients taking dicyclomine and mepenzolate bromide. Adequate studies are not performed in pregnant women who are related to the drug listed. Use only when the benefits are needed and the potential for harm outweighs the potential harm to the fetus.

Breastfeeding: These drugs appear in breast milk. They can reduce milk production and cause side effects to the baby. Breastfeeding is contraindicated in patients taking dicyclomine. Consult your doctor before you breastfeed.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of children has not yet been established. Hyoscyamine has been used in baby colic. Some infant deaths are associated with the use of dicyclomine. Dicyciomine is not recommended for use in children under 6 months.

Elderly: These medications can cause mental disorders and confusion in older patients.

Laboratory tests may be required during therapy including upper gastrointestinal contrast radiology or endoscopy, as well as blood tests in the stool. Make sure to save the appointment.

Tartrazine: Some of these products may contain tartrazine dyes that can cause allergic reactions in certain individuals. Check the label of the package when it is available or see your doctor or pharmacist.
