Kolanticon Gel oral suspension contains antispasmodic (relieves muscle spasm), and antiflatulent (relieves wind) and antacids.
Kolanticon Gel is used to treat stomach complaints, such as irritable bowel syndrome, where there are problems such as painful cramps, indigestion, and flatulence (wind). It helps to relieve painful cramps by relaxing the muscles of the intestine. It helps to relieve indigestion by reducing acidity and relieve flatulence by bringing together all the small
bubbles of gas to form a large bubble that can be expelled.
Kolanticon Gel Oral suspension targets multiple symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The four main active ingredients work on different symptoms associated with IBS at the same time. Together they provide a broad-spectrum approach to IBS management.
Dicycloverine hydrochloride is an antispasmodic agent that tackles the abdominal pain, discomfort and cramping that many patients with IBS experience. Dicycloverine does this by helping the muscle walls of the stomach and intestines to relax. Some of the side effects of Kolanticon are due to these positive effects of dicycloverine.
Simethicone, an antiflatulent agent, helps reduce the pressure caused by excess intestinal gas and thereby eases bloating and flatulence. Simethicone does this by increasing the size of bubbles of gas trapped inside the large bowel, which make them easier to escape and brings about rapid relief. Simethicone should not cause any significant side effects because it is not absorbed by the body.
Around one quarter to one-half of all people with IBS are thought to experience heartburn, otherwise known as acid indigestion. Kolanticon contains two antacids, aluminium hydroxide and magnesium oxide, that help neutralise excess acid in the stomach. This in turn helps reduce the chest pain caused by acid rising up from the stomach and into the oesophagus and causing inflammation.
If used alone, aluminium hydroxide can cause mild constipation and magnesium oxide can cause mild diarrhoea. However, when used together in Kolanticon the effects of these two ingredients balance each other. This means that there should be no overall effect on constipation or diarrhoea as a result of these two ingredients.
