How It Work?
Colpep Suspension is a mixture of two active medicines Dicyclomine, an antispasmodic agent, and Dimethicone, an antifoaming medicine. Dicyclomine works by relaxing the muscles in your stomach and gut (intestine). It stops sudden muscle contractions (spasms), thereby relieving abdominal cramps and pain. Whereas, the antifoaming medicine disintegrates gas bubbles and allows easy passage of gas.
Colpep Suspension helps treat stomach pain, bloating, and abdominal cramps caused due to acidity, gas, infections, or diseases of the gastrointestinal tract in children. It works by relaxing the muscles of the gut and absorbing extra gas. Colpep Suspension also helps control the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
Give the prescribed dose of Colpep Suspension to your child orally before a meal or as suggested by the doctor. Your child’s doctor may prescribe this medicine for a few days to many days. But, do not continue it for more than 2 weeks without consulting the doctor as excessive and long-term use may have adverse effects on your child. Additionally, do not abruptly stop the medicine by yourself as it may bring back the symptoms or worsen your child’s condition.
Some of the common yet temporary side effects of this medicine include nausea, vomiting, constipation, burping, vision problem, loss of appetite, and drowsiness. If these occur, they will subside once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. In case these side effects do not improve or become bothersome for your child, do reach out to the doctor on a priority basis.
You must let your child’s doctor know about all the medicines your child is being given. Also, inform the doctor of any previous history of allergy, intolerance to any food products, abdominal obstruction, liver impairment, kidney malfunction, or any birth defects. This information is very important for dose alterations and for planning your child’s overall treatment.
