Pharmacodynamics

Simethicone is an organosilicon-type substance belonging to the group of polydimethylsiloxanes. It has a defoaming effect. Simethicone has no toxic properties, affects the surface tension of gas bubbles that form inside the gastrointestinal tract, destroying them. The gases released during this are released naturally with the intestinal contents through its peristalsis. Some of these gases are also absorbed into the walls of the small intestine.

In gastritis, simethicone exhibits an analgesic effect. Helps stabilize gastric function by improving well-being and digestive processes.[2]

Clinical testing has confirmed a relaxing effect on gastrointestinal smooth muscle. Phloroglucinol dihydrate reduces the rate of excess motor activity in the colon and colon, which typically occurs as a reaction to food intake in people with bowel disorders.[3]

Pharmacokinetics

When taken orally, phloroglucinol is absorbed at a high rate and participates in metabolic processes during the 1st intrahepatic passage. Excretion is carried out in the form of metabolic elements, mainly in the urine. The period of reaching the plasma Cmax is 60 minutes. With a Cmax of 2.74 mg / ml, the half-life is 2 hours. The overall level of oral bioavailability is 30%.

Simethicone is not absorbed inside the body; after passing through the gastrointestinal tract, it is excreted unchanged.
