 Odeston - relieve pain in the biliary tract

How does Odeston

Odeston (INN - gimekromon) is a cholagogue. It stimulates the production of bile and excretion her bile ducts into the gallbladder. Excretion of bile helps relieve spasms under the influence of this drug (antispasmodic action).

Odeston also helps relieve spasms common bile duct at the outflow of bile from the gallbladder into the duodenum. And as with the common bile duct merges into the pancreatic duct, the action Odeston also reflected on the status of the organ. This happens due to the removal of spasm of the sphincter of Oddi - wide smooth muscle, which covers the ends of the common bile duct and pancreatic duct to connect them, and then to the confluence of the common duct into the duodenum.

When receiving Odeston all smooth muscles of biliary tract and sphincter of Oddi relaxes, it allows unhindered flow of bile into the gallbladder first, and then from the gallbladder into the duodenum.

When biliary dyskinesia on the hyperkinetic type of patients concerned recurrent pain in the right hypochondrium. Pain may not be very intense, but persistent. In any case, the main cause of pain is a spasm of the bile ducts, gallbladder and common bile duct. Odeston relieves spasms and the pain goes away.

Also freely under the action of the intestines comes Odeston pancreatic juice. This is very important because the stagnation of digestive juice in the pancreas can lead to digestion of the tissue of the pancreas - acute pancreatitis. If such a process is started, the patients concerned are very strong pain, which can lead to the development of a painful shock.

In what cases and how to prescribe

Odeston prescribed for dyskinesia (violation of motor activity) biliary tract of hyperkinetic type. This disease is characterized by frequent spasms of smooth muscles of biliary tract, accompanied by bouts of pain in the right upper quadrant. Sometimes bile duct are constantly in spastic condition, due to which the patients are concerned not so intense, but persistent pain. After receiving Odeston pain removed.

Pain in the right upper quadrant can occur in violation of excretion of bile from the gallbladder into the duodenum due to spasm of the sphincter of Oddi. Spasm of the sphincter of Oddi can also cause severe pain in the upper abdomen, which is a sign of insufficient outflow of digestive juices from the pancreas Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know  Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know
 . Such pain can also removed Odeston reception.

At chronic cholangitis and cholecystitis (no stones) bile stasis contributes to the maintenance of the inflammatory process in this area. Odeston in this case, is appointed as part of a treatment with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial drugs.

You can apply Odeston and uncomplicated gallstone disease: improvement of bile flow prevents the formation of new stones. After surgery, gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy) Odeston prescribed to prevent stagnation of bile in the biliary tract, forming in their gallstones and inflammation.

Furthermore, in some cases, the cells produce insufficient liver bile, which affects the quality of digestion. Such patients may be nausea, vomiting, constipation and persistent loss of appetite. Odeston in this case stimulates the secretion of bile and its arrival into the intestines.

Odeston take on a tablet (200 mg) three times a day for two to three weeks. Sometimes prescription dose is increased to two or more tablets three times per day. Overdose of the drug to date has not been revealed.

Motilium gastritis - helping to improve the general condition

February 24, 2013

 motilium gastritis
 Motilium can be used in inflammatory diseases of the stomach, which are accompanied by disturbances of tone and peristalsis of the gastrointestinal tract. This leads to a delay in the stomach of food and causes unpleasant symptoms such as feeling of fullness in the abdomen, pain, nausea and vomiting. Motilium helps to improve the patient's condition.

Motilium in acute gastritis

Acute gastritis - an inflammation of the gastric mucosa caused by exposure to any short-term factors - infection, toxic substances, pharmaceuticals, rough, sharp and low-quality food and so on. All these factors have an irritating effect on the gastric mucosa, causing dermatitis. This leads to disruption of gastric acid secretion, digestion, reduce tone and motility of the smooth muscle of the stomach. Food is digested slowly and lingers in the stomach, its products of incomplete digestion irritate the mucous membrane. That is acute gastritis is characterized by impaired secretion and motor function of the stomach.

The symptoms of acute gastritis are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain Abdominal pain: Types and Symptoms  Abdominal pain: Types and Symptoms
 . If the cause of gastritis is an infection, then there is high temperature, increasing intoxication and dehydration.

Treatment of gastritis depends on its cause. For example, in case of poisoning gastric lavage is performed, when a bacterial infection - prescribed antibiotics, and so on. Any form of acute gastritis prescribe plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration.

Furthermore, for the treatment of acute gastritis prescribed drugs stimulate locomotor activity of the stomach that promote gastric emptying and promote its food through the gastrointestinal tract. These drugs include motilium mechanism of action is associated with blockage of transmission of the neurotransmitter dopamine receptors on nerve cells. The main object of dopamine is "service information" about the state of the stomach into the central nervous system (CNS), including in the vomiting center. And if information about troubles is not received, the vomiting center does not cause phenomena such as nausea and vomiting - the appointment of Motilium are suppressed.

Motilium is also toning and strengthening the peristalsis of smooth muscles of the stomach - the stomach is emptied quickly and the food passes into the duodenum. This greatly facilitates the patient's condition.

Motilium in chronic gastritis

Chronic gastritis - a chronic inflammation of the gastric mucosa, which is characterized by alternating periods of exacerbations and light ends, usually by atrophic changes (reduction in volume) in the mucosa. The cause of chronic gastritis can be eating disorders, severe physical and psychological stress, constant stress, long-term use of drugs or foods that irritate the stomach, food allergies, exposure to bacterial infection (Helicobacter pylori) and so on.

All manifestations of chronic gastritis as well as acute, due to violation of the motor and secretory function of the stomach. During exacerbation of the disease, pain in the upper abdomen, often wearing paroxysmal in nature, heartburn, belching Belching: why it happens and that means  Belching: why it happens and that means

 . Also, digestive disorders accompanied by such common disorders as fatigue, decreased performance, malaise, headaches and so on.

In the treatment of chronic gastritis assigned complex treatment whose composition may vary depending on the type and stage of gastritis patient. But mandatory component thus are drugs - prokinetics, improves skin tone and motor activity of smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract and promotes rapid gastric emptying of food. Prokinetic prescribed both during exacerbation and remission during an anti-treatment.

One is a prokinetic motilium mechanism of action is associated with blockage of dopamine receptors. Application motilium Motilium - help with the vomiting and impaired motor activity of the stomach  Motilium - help with the vomiting and impaired motor activity of the stomach
   during exacerbation of chronic gastritis in the complex treatment contributes to the rapid disappearance of the main symptoms of the disease, accelerate remission. As an anti-treatment motilium can be used, either alone or together with other drugs that reduce the risk of exacerbations.

The course of treatment comprising administering of tablets, coated tablets, oral tablets or lingual tablet three times a day, half an hour before a meal. Duration of treatment is determined by your doctor.

Motilium gastritis must appoint a physician.
