Drotaverine is used in the treatment of abdominal pain or smooth muscle spasms associated with gastrointestinal tract, biliary colic (pain caused by gallstones), renal colic (pain caused by kidney stones), and dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation).
Drotaverine: Antispasmodic agents
Drotaverine works by blocking certain enzymes, which results in increased release of chemical substance that causes relaxation of smooth muscles. This kind of action provides relief from stomach pain due to muscle spasms in gastrointestinal tract, urinary system and gall bladder.
