spasmoctyl 40 side effects

My husband and I are in Spain, so there is a language barrier with the doctor I saw 2 days ago. I was diagnosed with GERD and prescribed Spasmoctyl 40 2 or 3 times a day and also Omeprazol 20mg - 1 every 12 hours.

spasmoctyl 40

what is comparable to this drug in america ## I need to buy it ## Hello, Based on my research, the main ingredient in Spasmoctyl 40 mg is Otilonium bromide. It is an Antimuscarinic and Antispasmodic medication that is sometimes prescribed for Irritable bowel syndrome. From what I can gather, it is not available in the U.S. so I recommend asking a Physician about other Antimuscarinic/Antispasmodic medications that are available in the U.S. You may also want to research essential oils with antispasmodic properties, since essential oils are more readily available worldwide. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Otilonium Bromide Details I hope this info helps!

Spasmoctyl Price

What is the price of the 20 pil box of Spasmoctyl and where can I buy it ## Spasmoctyl contains the active ingredient Otilonium, it is an antimuscarinic. It is not approved for sale and use here in the U.S., so I am having trouble finding a lot of information on it and I am also not finding them listed for sale online. The price will vary, depending on where you can purchase it and the only thing I have found with that information says that a 60 count box is about 18 Euros. Does anyone else have more information? ## I can confirm the previous post. I just bought this over the counter in the canaries when I was seeking pills for menstrual cramps!! At home in UK I believe spasmoctyl is not licensed or at very least will b prescription only and on searching online discovered its for IBS/di...
