Pharmacological properties.

Pharmacodynamics

Simethicone, which is part of the drug, is a non-toxic inert surfactant made on the basis of silicon, an antifoam. It changes the surface tension of gas bubbles formed in the intestine, and causes their destruction. The gases that are released in this case can either be absorbed by the intestinal walls or excreted from the body due to intestinal motility. The use of Simethicone before the start of diagnostic tests of the abdominal cavity prevents the occurrence of image defects caused by gas bubbles; promotes thorough irrigation of the mucous membrane of the colon with a contrast agent, which prevents the rupture of the contrast film even in case of bloating.

Pharmacokinetics

Simethicone acts exclusively on the surface of gas bubbles and is not absorbed by the mucous membrane of the digestive tract. Simethicone after oral administration is excreted unchanged. Simethicone has no central effect.

Clinical characteristics.

Indications.

  • Symptomatic treatment of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract associated with gas formation, such as flatulence, including in the postoperative period. as an aid in conducting diagnostic tests of the abdominal organs (radiography, ultrasound) and in preparation for gastroduodenoscopy. as an antifoam for intoxication with surface-active substances (washing powders or other detergents).

Contraindications

Features of the application.

In case of repeated complaints or prolonged complaints from the digestive tract, consult a doctor.

Use during pregnancy or lactation.

There are no clinical data on the use of the drug afletin by pregnant women. since the active component is not absorbed by the mucous membrane of the digestive tract, one should not expect any effect of the drug on the fetus or the accumulation of the drug in breast milk.

The use of the drug Afletin during pregnancy or lactation is possible only when the expected benefit for the woman exceeds the potential risk to the fetus or child.

The ability to influence the reaction rate when driving vehicles or other mechanisms.

Since Simethicone is an inert substance that is not absorbed, the effect on driving vehicles or other mechanisms is practically excluded.
