Reduces the tone of smooth muscles of blood vessels and internal organs (gastrointestinal tract, biliary, urogenital tracts and cardiovascular system), reducing their motor activity, moderately expands blood vessels. Does not affect the central nervous system and the autonomic nervous system.

Why are rectal suppositories better absorbed and effective than conventional tablets?

Vitaliy RusuPupil (96), closed 6 years ago

To me to cure from spastic strictures in a stomach or appointment has appointed spazmalgin in suppositories, as means of first aid. when I asked about the crowd, she said that the candles would help faster. Here I also puzzle myself, why exactly candles, is it really better to absorb in the colon than in the stomach? And with what it is connected? and if so, why do not all medications take rectally? I ask you not to make fun of it.

Candles intended for introduction into the rectum can be divided into two large groups. The first group includes those candles that act at the injection site. They may have, for example, an antihemorrhoid effect. The second group includes candles, which are like substitutes for tablets. That is, the medicinal substances from them are absorbed, enter the bloodstream and influence the whole organism (this is how you were appointed). On the medicine (well, for example you drank a pill). got into the stomach and intestines, there is a lot of digestive enzymes. It falls into the acidic medium, then into the alkaline medium, it can interact with the food particles. In addition, absorbed from the intestine, substances from the tablets enter the liver. There too, there are many enzymes that can destroy the medicine. Therefore, sometimes after all these transformations, only 10-20% of the accepted dose of the drug falls into the blood. Of course, not all drugs are destroyed so much. But this fact doctors necessarily take into account. And the medicine, which got into the rectum, is absorbed into the blood immediately, bypassing the liver. In addition, he does not have to go through the entire digestive tract. This is a great advantage of candles.
After the introduction of a candle, you must lie down for at least 30-40 minutes. If there are any unusual sensations, such as burning, then you should definitely consult a doctor.

the rectal mucosa is very well supplied with blood, and there is no hydrochloric acid, as in the stomach, so it is absorbed faster

In the intestine and including in the rectum, everything is absorbed faster. And if through the stomach, then part of the drug is also destroyed under the influence of gastric juice. Yes, the stomach is not absorbed, absorbed in the small intestine. So think about how much the pill will take until it gets into the blood. And in the intestines - right away.

On the way to the tablets, there is saliva, and gastric juice (acid).
And in. water absorption, and the acid is no more, the medicine gets into the blood in its pure form and faster!

the direct intestine has a good venous system, so the outflow is better and the effect comes faster.
