Pharmacodynamics :

Tritone, trimebutine maleate, is intestinal motility regulator and
autispasrnodic. Tritone, as direct-acting smooth muscle relaxant, reduces spasms, therefore may decrease severe, acute abdominal pain associated with itritable bowel syndrome, especially if it is
postprandial. Tritone is a peripheral enkephalinergic receptor agonist and releases the enkephalins to act on digestive motility, which has analgesic action. Tritone stimulates the intestinal motility (by activating phase of the migrarirrg motor complex MMC) and inhibits spasms due to previous stimulation.

Pharmacokinetics :

Peak plasma concentration in the blood is reached within 1 to
2 hours. Trimebutine undergoes metabolism in the liver as hydrolysis for the ester and also capable of a first-pass metabolism.
Elimination is rapid, principally through urine, average 70% in
24 hours.

Indications :

– Treatment and relief of symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome (spastic colon).
