INTRODUCTION

SPEROXATE contains Flavoxate which belongs to the group of medicines called antispasmodic agents. It is used in the treatment and prevention of muscle spasms of urinary tract which may occur due to inflammation of the bladder, prostate gland or urethra. It can also be used to relieve unpleasant symptoms such as painful urination, excessive urination at night and the inability to control urine flow caused by surgery, cystoscopy or catheterization.

Flavoxate is an anti-spasmodic medicine, which works by inhibiting the muscle contractions of the bladder, along with reducing pain.

It also helps to relieve pain during urination caused by surgery or catheterization.
