Equirex Tablet Description

Equirex tablet belongs to a class of drugs known as gastrointestinal agents used to treat peptic ulcers, IBS, and enterocolitis (swelling in the intestine). Peptic ulcers are lesions that form on the

lining of the stomach and intestines as the stomach's protective membrane erodes. Enterocolitis is a digestive system inflammation caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, and other factors. Equirex tablets contain two medications, chlordiazepoxide and clidinium. Chlordiazepoxide is a benzodiazepine that inhibits aberrant brain activity. It inhibits the function of the chemical messenger that sends messages to brain cells, resulting in a calming effect and muscle relaxation. Clidinium is an anticholinergic that works by reducing the formation of stomach acid. It aids in the treatment of stomach cramps and spasms. This drug is utilised to reduce cramps and abdominal pain in gastrointestinal illnesses such as irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, enterocolitis, and other digestive function disorders. Equirex is used in peptic and gastric ulcers. Peptic ulcer disease is characterised by abdominal pain, searing stomach pain, nausea, feeling full, bloating, and other symptoms. The Equirex tablet is available in capsule form. You must take this medication exactly as directed by your doctor. Dry mouth, blurred vision, constipation, nausea, bloating, urinary issues, drowsiness, dizziness, rash, swelling, irregular menstruation cycles, and increased or decreased libido are all possible adverse effects of Equirex tablets. If you are allergic to Chlordiazepoxide, Clidinium, or any of the other ingredients in the Equirex tablet, do not take it. If you have glaucoma, an enlarged prostate, difficulties urinating, heart issues, liver, or renal illnesses, depression, alcohol misuse, or high blood pressure, tell your doctor before taking the Equirex tablet. Equirex tablets are not for children. Also, if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding, tell your doctor.
