About GASTRAZINE CAPSULE

GASTRAZINE CAPSULE is an 'antispasmodic' (spasm and cramps reliever) agent, primarily used for reducing stomach pain due to spasms, cramps and bloating. Abdominal spasms are the acute condition in which the abdominal muscles (abs), intestine and stomach contract severely. Stomach spasms can be caused due to muscle strain, dehydration, stomach gas formation, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, gastritis (stomach inflammation), pregnancy, constipation or other gastrointestinal infection.

GASTRAZINE CAPSULE is a combination drug containing Dicyclomine and Dimethicone. Dicyclomine is an antispasmodic agent that reduces spasms and pain by relaxing the muscles and blocking certain chemical messengers in the brain responsible for causing the sensation of pain. On the other hand, Dimethicone is an anti-foaming agent that treats bloating and releases stomach gas more efficiently. Together GASTRAZINE CAPSULE helps reduce muscle contractions and pain by acting on the intestine's inner lining, allowing gas bubbles to come together, relieving cramps and spasms.

GASTRAZINE CAPSULE should only be if your doctor has prescribed you. It can be taken with or without food but at a fixed time for the best results. The course of GASTRAZINE CAPSULE course should be completed as your doctor prescribes for better results. Some common side effects of GASTRAZINE CAPSULE are dryness in the mouth, dizziness, weakness, nervousness, sleepiness, and nausea. Please consult your doctor if an allergic reaction becomes severe.

Medicinal Benefits

GASTRAZINE CAPSULE is a combination drug containing Dicyclomine (antispasmodic) and  Dimethicone (anti-foaming agent), primarily taken to get relief from period pain, abdominal spasmodic pain, bloating, and general pain-related discomfort of the lower abdomen. Dicyclomine, being an antispasmodic, helps treat spasms and pain by relaxing the muscles. It also blocks certain chemical messengers in the brain, which cause pain sensation, hence relieving pain. Dimethicone is an anti-foaming agent; it helps to treat bloating and releases gas more easily. Collectively, both help to reduce abdominal pain caused due to spasms, cramps and gas formation. GASTRAZINE CAPSULE can be used both by men and women.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Abdominal or Stomach spasm: It is a short-term or acute condition in which the abdominal muscles (abs), intestine and stomach contract severely. Stomach spasms can be caused due to muscle strain, dehydration, stomach gas formation, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, gastritis (stomach inflammation), pregnancy, constipation or other gastrointestinal infection.

    Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): It is also termed IBS colitis, mucous colitis, spastic colon, nervous colon, and spastic bowel. It is an inflammatory bowel disease that affects the large intestine. Symptoms of an IBS include abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea, mucus in stools, wind, constipation, tiredness, anxiety, depression, heartburn, indigestion, and headaches. IBS can be controlled by managing diet, excluding certain intolerant foods, lifestyle, and stress. It is more commonly found in people in their late teens to early 40s.

    Menstrual cramps: When your uterus contracts and gets expelled during the menses periods, hormones like prostaglandins get involved in triggering pain and inflammation. This, in turn, increases uterine muscle contractions. So, higher levels of prostaglandins (pain hormone) are associated with more-severe menstrual cramps.
