How it works
Dicyclomine works by blocking the action of a chemical substance in the body and relieves the symptoms like the stomach and intestinal cramping. Simethicone reduces excessive gas in the stomach and relieves symptoms such as stomach discomfort, abdominal pain, and flatulence. Oxetacaine locally reduces the generation of pain signals and blocks the pain signals from reaching the brain. It also inhibits acid secretion in the stomach to reduce the pain and irritation associated with diseases of the stomach and intestines.
