Mode of Action of Racigyl Sb Sach

How Does It Work?

Racigyl SB Sachet contains two active medicines, Racecadotril (anti-secretory agent) and Saccharomyces boulardii (probiotic). Racecadotril acts on the enzymes of the intestine and reduces the loss of water and salts (electrolytes) from intestinal walls while Saccharomyces boulardii is a type of 'friendly micro organism' and inhibits other harmful bacteria. The combination of both these medicines helps in controlling diarrhoea in children. It is equally important to maintain the recommended rehydration of the child along with these medicines.
