Mechanism Of Action Physiologically simeticone is extremely inert, and therefore it will not be pharmacologically active. It works by altering the elasticity of interfaces of bubbles in the gastrointestinal tract. The gas bubbles are thus broken down or coalesced and in this form gas is more easily eliminated through eructation or passing flatus
INDICATIONS Antiflatulent agent for the symptomatic relief of flatulence, wind pains, bloating, abdominal distension and other symptoms associated with gastrointestinal gas
CONTRAINDICATIONS Simeticone is contraindicated in patients with a previous history of hypersensitivity to simeticone or excipients.
Side EFFECTS Minor adverse effects: nausea and constipation. Rarely hypersensitivity reactions: such as rash, pruritus, facial oedema, tongue oedema, respiratory difficulty. Frequency not defined: Loose stools
WARNINGS • If symptoms persist for more than 14 days, or if symptoms worsen, medical advice must be sought. • The chew tab contains sorbitol; Patients with rare hereditary problems of fructose intolerance should not take this medicine. • The Oral suspension (drops) contains sodium benzoate/benzoic acid; benzoic acid (benzoate) is a metabolite of benzyl alcohol; large amounts of benzyl alcohol (≥99 mg/kg/day) have been associated with a potentially fatal toxicity (“gasping syndrome”) in neonates
DRUG INTERACTIONS Although no studies have been presented, the concomitant use of this drug and mineral oil (paraffin) based laxatives is not recommended since mixing of these two will diminish the efficacy. Levothyroxine may bind to simeticone. Absorption of levothyroxine may be impaired if this drug is taken concurrently to treatment for thyroid disorders.
Pregnancy And lactations Medical advice should be sought prior to taking this product if pregnant. Studies in animals have revealed adverse effects on the foetus and there are no controlled studies in women. Drugs should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the foetus.
