Hyoscine Butylbromide is a quaternary ammonium antimuscarinic agent. Hyoscine butylbromide does not readily pass the blood-brain barrier. It’s a competitive antagonist of the actions of acetylcholine and other muscarinic agonists. The receptors affected are those of peripheral structures that are either stimulated or inhibited by muscarine, ie. exocrine glands, smooth and cardiac muscle.
Hyoscine Butylbromide is used in the treatment of conditions associated with gastro-intestinal spasm.
