Pharmacological action - adsorbing, enveloping, antidiarrheal.
Forms a thin film on the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract. After oral administration, it is not absorbed into the digestive tract, it gradually progresses to the distal end of the digestive canal and is excreted. In the intestine adsorbs liquid, toxic and irritating substances, pathogenic pathogens and toxins formed by them, contributes to normalization of intestinal flora, reduces diarrhea, toxicosis, inflammatory phenomena. Promotes thickening of the liquid contents of the intestine, improves the consistency of the stool and reduces the number of bowel movements. Has astringent effect, favorably affects the irritated intestinal mucosa, reduces spasmic contractions of the musculature of the intestine.
Application of Attapulgite
Acute diarrhea of various origins, incl. when food poisoning, allergies or intolerance of certain food products, if the balance of the intestinal microflora is disturbed; irritation of the intestinal mucosa (as part of a combination therapy).
Hypersensitivity, intestinal obstruction, chronic diarrhea, diarrhea of parasitic genesis (including amoebic dysentery), acute dysentery with a stool with a dash of blood and fever (treatment with antidiarrheal drugs alone is not enough, antibiotics may be needed), children under 3 years old and elderly age (risk of loss of fluid and salts).
pregnancy and lactation
With caution (application experience is limited).
Constipation (rarely), allergic reactions.
Reduces the speed and completeness of absorption from the digestive tract of other drugs (antibiotics, digoxin, anticholinergics).
Routes of administration
Precautions for Attapulgite
Treatment of children 3-6 years is strictly according to the doctor's prescription and under his supervision.
With an increase in body temperature, bloody stools or in cases of continued diarrhea after 2 days of treatment, it is necessary to clarify the diagnosis with the help of clinical and bacteriological studies.
If diarrhea and associated loss of fluid requires oral treatment with solutions for rehydration, it is performed primarily (especially in children and elderly patients), regardless of attapulgite treatment.
With diarrhea, presumably parasitic genesis, the use of antidiarrheals can make it difficult to recognize the etiology of the disease; when suspected of the parasitic nature of diarrhea, a feces analysis should be performed before attapulgite treatment begins.
It should be borne in mind that antidiarrhoeal adsorbents mask the loss of fluid, therefore, when there are signs of dehydration (dry mouth, thirst, reduced urine output, dizziness, etc.), rehydration therapy is necessary.
