Antispasmodic and analgesic
Buscopan (Hyoscine-N-butylbromide) has a highly selective antispasmodic action of the smooth muscle of the gastrointestinal, biliary and urogenital tracts. It has the great advantage that it is virtually devoid of the side effects usually associated with drugs of the atropine series.
Buscopan Compositum is a combination of Buscopan with dipyrone (phenyl-dimethyl-pyrazolon-methylamino-methane sulfonate sodium). It is used for the relief of colic and severe spastic pain in conditions in which an analgesic as well as an antispasmodic efffect is required.
It is available as oral, parenteral and rectal forms of administration.
Biliary colic, renal colic and other conditions of paroxysmal abdominal pain. Painful spastic conditions of the female genital system, dysmenorrhoea.
Although dipyrone is a soluble and generally well-tolerated aminopyrine derivative, as with all derivatives of this group, prolonged administration is inadvisable, particularly in patients with a history of drug allergy or blood dyscrasia.
