Mode of action of butylscopolamine

Butylscopolamine belongs to the drug group of muscarinic receptor antagonists. So far, it is used exclusively in the form of a salt as Butylscopolaminium bromide, a so-called quaternary ammonium compound, for use.

Butylscopolamine acts on nerve endings that are excited by the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. The active ingredient displaces the acetylcholine from the corresponding receiving sites (cholinoceptors, muscarinic receptors) at the end of the nerve fibers. The transmission of impulses from a nerve cell to an organ is thus made difficult or completely blocked.

Since cholinoceptors are distributed throughout the body, butylscopolamine is very different. It relaxes the muscles of the stomach, intestines, urinary tract and genitals. The production of bronchial fluid, saliva and sweat as well as in high doses the secretion of gastric acid are inhibited. In addition, butylscopolamine paralyzes the muscles of the eye lens, which allows the sharp vision (accommodation).

When ingested (ie not injected into the bloodstream), butylscopolamine is absorbed only to a minor extent in the body. Due to local effects it develops its effects almost exclusively in the digestive canal.

    Buscopan for Hurt

    First, the doctor found a gastritis and a urinary tract infection. After two days of taking Cotrim forte and Pariet Seven at night Kolliken. Taking Buscopan, then slight improvement. After bleeding, liver inflammation was noted. Then change to ciprofloxacin, as it should also help for bile duct inflammation. After three days of taking another Kollik took place. Again slight improvement with Buscopan. Then just wait and drink tea. After two weeks, again strong urgency with pain, urine but no evidence of bacteria. Irritable bladder? Medical history continues. At the moment I’m only taking something for the pain, Novalgin drops and Buscopan, but how long is that going to last? I have been ill for 4 weeks. If someone can help me, just go ahead, I’m despairing. binies@web.de

    Buscopan for Pain (acute)

    This Antra, which is said to be good for longer lasting and stronger stomach pains due to hyperacidity, is not even good as a placebo. If you’re seriously worried about prolonged discomfort and still face a nutrient solution infusion after taking Antra, you just have to have a better supplement!

    Buscopan for Hurt

    I got Buscopan Plus in the pharmacy for stomach ache. After 3 days I got hives (urticaria) all over my body with reddened skin, itching and wheals. These places literally moved from left to right and down to the top. Have then (it was Sunday) get the free market Fenistil in the emergency pharmacy. The complaints were thus much better, but did not disappear or always came after the meal (histamine intake) to a certain extent again. Then I got the doctor prescribed an antihistamine (antiallergic). Has worked immediately! Can even eat a lot of histamine again without what happens.

    Side effects: Hives

    Buscopan for Hurt

    For the second time, I had severe intestinal spasms (on the left side of the abdomen, cramps that kept coming and going). The first time I did a 5-day cleansing on a natural basis (minerals). That was good. Now I got the cramps 3 months later but again and drove to a hospital (live in England). The doctor prescribed Buscopan for me, of which I took 2 tablets right there. Since it was already in the middle of the night when I came home, I went to bed with pain and woke up without pain and had a bowel movement, which then became diarrhea. I could have done that with natural colon cleansing like last time, that would have been just as effective but healthier. Why do some chemicals in an already attacked body and accept side effects, if that’s the case? Now drink more water, eat more unspiced fruit / vegetables and hope that was the last time. Shortly before had fast food and stress. That’s probably not a good mix.

    Side effects: Diarrhea
