Restropinal consists of Scopolamine, Secbutabarbital.
Scopolamine - Restropinal (Scopolamine) is an anticholinergic medicine. Restropinal (Scopolamine) has many effects in the body including decreasing the secretion of fluids, slowing the stomach and intestines, and dilation of the pupils.
Restropinal (Scopolamine) is used to relieve nausea, vomiting, and dizziness associated with motion sickness and recovery from anesthesia and surgery. Restropinal (Scopolamine) may also be used in the treatment of parkinsonism, spastic muscle states, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, and other conditions.
Restropinal (Scopolamine) may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
Restropinal (Scopolamine) is a muscarinic antagonist structurally similar to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and acts by blocking the muscarinic acetylcholine receptors and is thus classified as an anticholinergic. Restropinal (Scopolamine) has many uses including the prevention of motion sickness. It is not clear how Restropinal (Scopolamine) prevents nausea and vomiting due to motion sickness. The vestibular part of the ear is very important for balance. When a person becomes disoriented due to motion, the vestibule sends a signal through nerves to the vomiting center in the brain, and vomiting occurs. Acetylcholine is a chemical that nerves use to transmit messages to each other. It is believe that Restropinal (Scopolamine) prevents communication between the nerves of the vestibule and the vomiting center in the brain by blocking the action of acetylcholine. Restropinal (Scopolamine) also may work directly on the vomiting center. Restropinal (Scopolamine) must be taken before the onset of motion sickness to be effective.
GIT spasm, spasm & dyskinesia of the biliary system, GUT spasm. Irritable bowel syndrome. Amp Acute GI, biliary & genito-urinary spasm, including biliary & renal colic. As an aid in diagnostic & therapeutic procedures where spasm may be a problem eg gastroduodenal endoscopy & radiology.
Secbutabarbital - Used for: Treating sleep disorders. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Restropinal (Secbutabarbital) is a barbiturate. It works by depressing the central nervous system, causing mild sedation or sleep, depending on the dose.
Butabarbital is in a group of drugs called barbiturates (bar-BIT-chur-ates). Butabarbital slows the activity of your brain and nervous system.
Butabarbital is used short-term to treat insomnia, or as a sedative before surgery.
Butabarbital may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
Restropinal (Secbutabarbital), a barbiturate, is used for the treatment of short term insomnia. It belongs to a group of medicines called central nervous system (CNS) depressants that induce drowsiness and relieve tension or nervousness. Little analgesia is conferred by barbiturates; their use in the presence of pain may result in excitation.
Indication: For short-term treatment of insomnia and anxiety disorders
BUTISOL SODIUM® (butabarbital sodium tablets, USP and butabarbital sodium oral solution, USP) is indicated for use as a sedative or hypnotic. Since barbiturates appear to lose their effectiveness for sleep induction and sleep maintenance after 2 weeks, use of BUTISOL SODIUM® in treating insomnia should be limited to this time (see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY above).
