Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2015.


Spasmolytic of myotropic action.
Has a direct effect on the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract. Eliminates spasm without affecting normal intestinal motility.
Does not possess anticholinergic action.



Mebeverin is quickly and completely absorbed after ingestion.
The modified release dosage form allows the dosing regimen to be used 2 times / day.

With repeated administration of the drug, significant cumulation does not occur.


Mebeverina hydrochloride is mainly metabolized by esterases, which in the first stage split the ether into veratric acid and mebeverine alcohol.
The main metabolite circulating in the plasma is the demethylated carboxylic acid. T 1/2 in the equilibrium state of the demethylated carboxylic acid is approximately 5.77 hours. With repeated administration at a dose of 200 mg 2 times / day, the C max of the demethylated carboxylic acid in the blood is 804 ng / ml, T max is about 3 hours.
The average value of the relative bioavailability of the drug in the modified release capsule is 97%.


Mebeverin in unchanged form is not excreted from the body, it is completely metabolized;
its metabolites are almost completely eliminated from the body. Veratric acid is excreted by the kidneys. Mebeverine alcohol is also excreted by the kidneys, partly in the form of a carboxylic acid and partly as a demethylated carboxylic acid.

- symptomatic treatment of pain, spasms, dysfunction and discomfort in the intestines associated with irritable bowel syndrome;

- symptomatic treatment of spasms of the digestive tract, incl.
caused by organic diseases.
