ATX code: A03AX13
Simeotic® is a drug that reduces gas in the intestine. The active substance, simethicone, has surface activity and the ability to reduce the surface tension at the liquid/gas interface. This causes merging of gas bubbles and destruction of foam, so that the released gas can be absorbed or excreted naturally under the influence of intestinal peristalsis. The use of Simeotic® in preparation for diagnostic examinations prevents image defects caused by gas bubbles.
Simethicone is chemically inert and is not absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) after oral administration and acts only in its lumen. It has no effect on enzymes and microorganisms present in the gastrointestinal tract. It is excreted unchanged.
Excessive formation and accumulation of gastric gas (flatulence, Remheld syndrome, aerophagia, increased gas formation in the postoperative period);
