Alverine citrate is a smooth muscle relaxant, that acts directly on intestinal and uterine smooth muscle. Smooth muscle is a type of muscle that is not under voluntary control. It is the type of muscle that is found in places such as the walls of the gut and the walls of the womb (uterus). Alverine citrate acts directly on this muscle, causing it to relax. Alverine citrate relaxes the muscle spasms that occur in the gut in conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and diverticular disease. This relieves the pain sometimes associated with these conditions. Alverine citrate also relieves the muscle spasms in the womb that cause painful periods.
Each film-coated tablet contains Alverine Citrate BP 60 mg.
