Buscopan (hyoscine butylbromide) tablets
How does it work?
Buscopan tablets are made up of the active ingredient hyoscine butylbromide, which belongs to the group of drugs known as antispasmodic. It is administered to reduce colicky abdominal pain that is caused by aching tremors in the muscles of the GU or GI tract.
Buscopan functions by soothing the muscle that is present in the stomach walls, intestinal walls, walls of the bowel, bile duct as well as urinary tract. This kind of muscle is known as involuntary muscle or smooth muscle. It generally retracts and soothes in retort to normal body secretions known as neurotransmitters. The retractions are induced by a neurotransmitter known acetylcholine. These reductions are not under our cognizant control and we are not generally sensitive of them. Nevertheless, if the muscles go into seizure this can induce pain.
Buscopan tablets checks the seizures in the smooth muscle by checking acetylcholine from working on the muscle. It performs this by thwarting the receptors on the cells of the muscles that the acetylcholine would usually operate on.
By stopping acetylcholine from working on the muscle in the Gastro-Intestinal as well as Genito-Urinary tracts, hyoscine butylbromide decreases the muscle reductions. This permits the muscle to soothe and decreases the hurting seizures and spasms.
