Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
Simethicone is a chemically inert substance with surface activity and antifoam action. It acts as an antifoam in the intestinal lumen: it reduces the tension of gas bubbles. The released gases are absorbed by the walls of the intestine, and part is removed naturally through intestinal motility. Simethicone acts on the surface of gas bubbles, without affecting the mucosa and is not absorbed. By removing bubbles, digestion and assimilation of nutrients are normalized. Application before ultrasound and x-ray examination prevents the occurrence of artifacts that cause gas bubbles. It does not contain sugar, therefore it can be used for diabetes.
It is not absorbed in the intestine, excreted unchanged.
Indications for use
- treatment flatulence of any origin (including in the postoperative period);

Indications for use also include the use of the drug in preparation for diagnostic studies (ultrasound, X-ray of the gastrointestinal tract, gastroscopy).

Not observed. In rare cases, individual intolerance.

What is better espumisan or bobotik?
A drug Bobotik contains the same active substance. The peculiarity of drugs based on simethicone is that they do not affect the work of the digestive tract, are not absorbed and excreted unchanged. In the case of prolonged colic in children, the best solution is the drugs on this basis. The above funds differ in the content of the active substance in 1 ml - 66 mg (Bobotik) and 40 mg (Espumisan), on the basis of this, the effectiveness of the first is greater. It is also convenient in dosage - 8 drops are enough for a baby at a time. Sugar free. The producer - Medana FARMA, Poland.
What is better espumisan or sub simplex?
Sub Simplex - also a tool based on simethicone. Judging by the dosage (in this preparation, 69.19 mg of simethicone is contained in 1 ml), it can be assumed that the effectiveness will be higher. A convenient bottle with a dropper allows you to accurately calculate 1 dose for an infant - 15 drops. What helps Sub Simplex? Eliminates infant colic during the period of adaptation to new food. To achieve the effect, it is better to use at the time of pain. Since the drug does not cause side effects, it can be used almost constantly, while it will be needed.

Meteospasmil or Espumisan - which is better?
Meteospasmil is a combined preparation containing not only simethicone, but also myotropic antispasmodic alverin, which reduces the tone of the muscles of the intestines. Therefore, it eliminates belching, nausea, colic and abdominal pain associated with increased gas formation. With this in mind, and also taking into account that the content of simethicone in 1 capsule is much higher (300 mg), we can conclude that this drug is more effective. However, it can be used only by adults and not more than 4 weeks, allergic reactions are possible, it is not recommended to use during pregnancy. Manufacturer Laboratoires MAYOLY-SPINDLER (France).
What is better than Espumisan or Bebicalm?
Bebicalm - biologically active additive consisting of essential oils: anise, dill, peppermint. Designed for children from the first days of life. It has a carminative, antispasmodic, calming, antibacterial effect. As you can see, the composition is different. The emulsion should be prepared by yourself, adding to 15 ml of a mixture of essential oils of boiled water to the mark indicated on the bottle, and store it in the refrigerator. Pipette dispenser included. Children in the first year of life are given 10 drops with a spoon before each feeding (even if there are 10 or more). Do not add the emulsion to the bottle with the mixture, as the child may refuse to eat because of the pronounced smell. You should start 2-3 drops and observe the condition of the child. The summary contains warnings that rash and itching are possible. Reviews about this dietary supplement are different: it helps someone, someone considers it useless. From the reviews, we can conclude that the drug should be given for a long time (month), even if colic and bloating have stopped. In this case, drops are not given at every feeding.
Espumisan during pregnancy
Can pregnant women use this drug? The instruction provides for the use of the drug by pregnant and lactating women.

If you are still worried about the presence of dye capsules, and you are prone to allergic reactions, use traditional medicine (decoction of dill and fennel seeds).

First of all, it is used to treat flatulence of any etiology, acts only in the intestine and is not absorbed, can be used for a long time, combined with other drugs and is suitable for the whole family. He helps someone more, someone less, but it already depends on the severity of flatulence and its causes (dysbiosis and chronic gastrointestinal diseases or simply flatulence of alimentary origin after eating grapes or cabbage). If taking the drug does not help, you need to be examined by a gastroenterologist to find out the cause of flatulence. Some argue that the drug is effective the first two weeks from the start of treatment.
