digestive enzymes/anticholinergics - oral
GENERIC NAME: DIGESTIVE ENZYMES/ANTICHOLINERGICS - ORAL
USES: This medication is used to treat symptoms of indigestion such as bloating, gas, and uncomfortable feelings of fullness. Digestive enzymes are natural substances needed by the body to help break down and digest food. As a person grows older, sometimes the pancreas does not release enough digestive enzymes into the gut to digest the food. This medication adds more natural digestive enzymes and also provides hyoscyamine and phenyltoloxamine. Hyoscyamine decreases stomach/intestinal spasms. Phenyltoloxamine is an antihistamine that causes a mild drowsiness effect.This medication should not be used to replace digestive enzymes, but as a supplement.
