About Meftal-Spas Suspension 60 ml

Meftal-Spas Suspension 60 ml is an 'antispasmodic' (spasm and cramps reliever) agent containing Dicyclomine and Simethicone, primarily used for reducing stomach pain due to spasm, cramps and bloating. Abdominal spasms are the acute condition in which the abdominal muscles (abs), intestine and stomach contracts severely. Stomach spasm 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.

Meftal-Spas Suspension 60 ml is a combination drug containing Dicyclomine and  Simethicone, primarily taken to get relief from period pain, spasmodic abdominal pain, bloating, and general pain-related discomfort of the lower abdomen. 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.
