Hyoscine butylbromide is a Quaternary ammonium derivative that acts at the parasympathetic ganglia in the walls of the viscera, where it exerts a specific antispasmodic action on the smooth muscle of the gastro-intestinal, biliary and urinary tracts.

BUSCOMED syrup should not be used in patients with:
– Myasthenia gravis

BUSCOMED syrup should not be used in patients who have experienced prior hypersensitivity to Hyoscine butylbromide.

Do not exceed the prescribed dose.
The effects of BUSCOMED Syrup may be enhanced by the concomitant administration of other medicines with antimuscarinic properties, such as amantadine, some antihistamines, butyrophenones, phenothiazines and tricyclic antidepressants. The absorption of other medicines may also be affected due to the reduction in gastric motility.
