About COLIGON O TABLET

COLIGON O TABLET belongs to a class of drugs called gastrointestinal agents used to treat stomach pain and heartburn due to acidity. Also, COLIGON O TABLET relieves spasms, discomfort, cramps, and bloating. Stomach pain is the pain that occurs between the pelvic regions and the chest. It may be caused due to acid reflux, constipation, diarrhoea, infection or intestinal disorders.

COLIGON O TABLET is a combination of four drugs, namely: Dicyclomine (antispasmodic), Magaldrate (antacid), Oxethazaine (local anaesthetic) and simethicone (anti-foaming agent). Dicyclomine works by relaxing the muscles in the walls of the intestine and provides relief from painful muscle spasms. Thus, it reduces stomach pain caused by spasms, cramps, gas formation, bloating, and discomfort. Magaldrate works by neutralizing excess acid in the stomach. Oxethazaine is a local anaesthetic that exerts a numbing effect and relieves pain due to acidic injury or ulcers in the stomach. Simethicone is an antifoaming agent that works by combining smaller gas bubbles that may get trapped among stomach contents into larger bubbles that are easily expelled by passing wind or burping.  Thereby, it helps in releasing gas.

Take COLIGON O TABLET as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take COLIGON O TABLET for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you based on your medical condition.

If you are known to be allergic to COLIGON O TABLET or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. COLIGON O TABLET is not recommended for children unless prescribed by a doctor.

Patients Concern

Disease/Condition Glossary

Stomach pain is the pain that occurs between the pelvic regions and the chest. It may be caused due to acid reflux, constipation, diarrhoea, infection or intestinal disorders. The stomach is usually protected from the acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets irritated or eroded, which leads to complications like hyperacidity, peptic ulcers and heartburn. Due to this, acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). This backflow (acid reflux) irritates the food pipe and causes heartburn. Symptoms include heartburn, sour or bitter taste in the mouth, and difficulty swallowing. Bloating occurs when the abdomen is filled with gas or air.
