How Gastobid Tablet works

Gastobid Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Isopropamide and Trifluoperazine. Isopropamide is an anticholinergic which works by blocking the binding of the acetylcholine (a chemical messenger) to its receptor in nerve cells. This relaxes the smooth muscles in the digestive tract and decreases the spasms. Trifluoperazine is a typical antipsychotic. It works by blocking the action of dopamine, a chemical messenger in the brain that affects thoughts and mood.

Patient Concerns

arrow
I've been suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome for 4 years. Morning one episode of watery diarrhea after breakfast. I consulted a doctor and he gave me Ramosetron Hydrochloride 5mcg and advised to use half of the Tablet at night before food and I got temporary cure. But after when I stop the Tablet the problem is recurring so I request you to suggest some better remedy for this condition. And can continue with the same Tab I used?. Is it good for a long term use?. Is there any severe side effect with the Tab? Thanking You, PATIENT
