Myotropic antispasmodic, has direct action on the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract without affecting normal intestinal peristalsis.
The exact mechanism of action is unknown, but multiple mechanisms, such as decreased ion channel permeability, norepinephrine reuptake blockade, local anesthetic action, and altered water absorption, may cause local gastrointestinal action of mebeverine. Through these mechanisms, mebeverine has an antispasmodic effect, normalizing intestinal peristalsis and not causing permanent relaxation of gastrointestinal smooth muscle cells (“hypotonia”). There are no systemic side effects, including anticholinergic.
Meberine is quickly and completely absorbed after oral administration.
There is no significant accumulation with repeated doses of the drug.
Meberine hydrochloride is primarily metabolized by esterases, which first break down the ester into veric acid and meberine alcohol. The main metabolite circulating in plasma is demethylated carboxylic acid. The equilibrium elimination half-life of demethylated carboxylic acid is approximately 2.45 h. When repeated doses are taken, the maximum concentration of demethylated carboxylic acid in the blood (Cmax) is 1670 ng/ml, the time to reach the maximum concentration of demethylated carboxylic acid in the blood (Tmax) is 1 hour.
Meberine as such is not excreted from the body, but is completely metabolized; its metabolites are almost completely excreted from the body. Veratroic acid is excreted by the kidneys. The alcohol of mebeverine is also excreted by the kidneys, partly as carboxylic acid and partly and partly as demethylated carboxylic acid.

How to take, the dosage
For oral administration.
The tablets should be swallowed without chewing, with plenty of water (at least 100 ml).
One tablet 3 times a day, about 20 minutes before a meal.

Dosing regimen studies in elderly patients, patients with renal and/or hepatic impairment have not been conducted. Available data on post-marketing use of the drug have not identified specific risk factors for its use in elderly patients and patients with renal and/or hepatic impairment. There is no need to change the dosing regimen in elderly patients and patients with renal and/or hepatic impairment.
There have only been studies on the interaction of this drug with alcohol. Animal studies have shown no interaction between Mebeverin-SZ and ethanol.
Consult a physician before taking Mebeverin-SZ if:
– if symptoms of the disease have occurred for the first time;
– unintentional and unexplained weight loss; <
– rectal bleeding or blood in the stools;
– If someone in your family has been diagnosed with colorectal cancer, celiac disease, or inflammatory bowel disease;
– Age over 50 years old and if it is the first time you have symptoms;
– Recent use of antibiotics.
Please see a doctor if the medicine causes a worsening of symptoms or does not improve after 2 weeks.
Influence on driving and operating ability
There have been no studies of the effect of the drug on driving and operating ability. Pharmacological properties of the drug as well as experience of its use do not indicate any adverse effect of mebeverine on the ability to drive vehicles and other mechanisms.
– Hypersensitivity to any component of the drug.
– Age under 18 years.
– Congenital intolerance of galactose (lactose) or fructose, lactase deficiency, sucrose/isomaltase deficiency, glucose-galactose malabsorption syndrome.
– Pregnancy and period of breastfeeding.
The reports of these side effects were spontaneous, and there are insufficient data to estimate the frequency of cases accurately.
Allergic reactions were observed predominantly on the skin, but other manifestations of allergy have also been reported.
Hives (allergic rash), angioedema (serious allergic reaction which may include: difficulty in breathing, swelling of the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat), facial edema, exanthema (skin rash).
The immune system:
Hypersensitivity reactions (anaphylactic reactions – serious allergic reactions that may include: difficulty breathing, rapid pulse, sharp decrease in blood pressure (weakness and dizziness), sweating).
If you experience any of the side effects, including those not mentioned in these instructions, stop taking Mebeverin-SZ and see your doctor immediately.
In case of overdose with Mebeverin-SZ, it is necessary to consult a doctor immediately.
Theoretically, in case of overdose it is possible to increase excitability of the central nervous system. In cases of mebeverine overdose, symptoms were either absent or mild and usually quickly reversible. The observed symptoms of overdose were neurological and cardiovascular in nature.
The specific aitidote is unknown. Symptomatic treatment is recommended. Gastric lavage is only necessary if intoxication is detected within approximately one hour after taking several doses of the drug. Absorption reduction measures are not required.
There are only very limited data on the use of mebeverine in pregnant women. Data from animal studies are insufficient to assess reproductive toxicity. It is not recommended to use Mebeverin-SZ during pregnancy.
Information on the excretion of mebeverine or its metabolites into breast milk is insufficient. Studies on the excretion of mebeverine into milk in animals have not been conducted. Mebeverin-SZ should not be taken while breastfeeding.
There are no clinical data on the effect of the drug on fertility in men or women; however, known animal studies have shown no adverse effects of Mebeverin-SZ.
