Indications And Usage
For the treatment of excessive salivation, colicky abdominal pain, bradycardia, sialorrhoea, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome and motion sickness.
Tablets should be swallowed whole with a glass of water.
The rapid action of injected is advantageous in acutely ill patients and in those
patients who have demonstrated prior hypersensitivity to hyoscine butylbromide or any other component of the product, myasthenia gravis, mechanical stenosis in the gastrointestinal tract, paralytical or obstructive ileus, megacolon, narrow angle glaucoma.
In case severe, unexplained abdominal pain persists or worsens, or occurs together with symptoms like fever, nausea, vomiting, changes in bowel movements, abdominal tenderness, decreased blood pressure, fainting, or blood in stool, medical advice should immediately be sought.
Hyoscine 10 mg Tablets should be used with caution in conditions characterised by tachycardia such as thyrotoxicosis, cardiac insufficiency or failure and in cardiac surgery where it may further accelerate the heart rate. Due to the risk of anticholinergic complications, caution should be used in patients susceptible to intestinal or urinary outlet obstructions. Because of the possibility that anticholinergics may reduce sweating, Hyoscine should be administered with caution to patients with pyrexia .Elevation of intraocular pressure may be produced by the administration of anticholinergic agents such as Hyoscine in patients with undiagnosed and therefore untreated narrow angle glaucoma. Therefore, patients should seek urgent ophthalmological advice in case they should develop a painful, red eye with loss of vision whilst or after taking Hyoscine.
