No-Spa Comfort 40mg (60 Tablets)
No-Spa Comfort is a diastolic drug that reduces pain (painful cramps) in the abdominal and pelvic organs, i.e. in the gastrointestinal tract (stomach and intestines), biliary and urinary tract, and in women also in the reproductive tract.
No-Spa Comfort contains the active substance drotaverine hydrochloride. This substance is used in the contraction of muscles of both nervous and muscular origin, most often manifested by pain in the abdominal cavity.
The relaxing effect of drotaverine does not depend on the type of innervation and the location of smooth muscles (gastrointestinal tract, urogenital system, circulatory system and biliary system). The drug is metabolized in the liver, excreted mainly in the urine and to a lesser extent through the gastrointestinal tract.

- auxiliary: – in contractile states of smooth muscles of the digestive tract: gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, gastritis, enteritis, colitis, in spasms of the stomach and pylorus, irritable colon syndrome, spastic constipation and intestinal distension, pancreatitis – in gynecological diseases: dysmenorrhea.
