What are Pro-Banthine tablets?

Pro-banthine tablets contain propantheline bromide, which is an antispasmodic agent. Pro-Banthine tablets can be used to reduce muscle spasms in the gastrointestinal tract, treat problems of involuntary urination and wetting (enuresis), and alleviate excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). Pro-banthine is an anticholinergic medicine that works in two ways. Firstly, it blocks the receptors receiving acetylcholine, which is a chemical produced by nerves that triggers the muscles. Secondly, it directly acts on the muscles causing them to relax.

How to use Pro-Banthine tablets

Your doctor will tell you how to use Pro-Banthine tablets. These tablets are taken one hour or more before meals because food interferes with the way they act. Usually, the dose to start with is one tablet before every meal and two tablets at bedtime. The number of tablets taken may then be increased (up to eight a day) by your doctor depending on how you respond to the tablets.

If you take too much medicine, either by accident or otherwise, contact a doctor or go to your hospital's Accident & Emergency department (along with the packet of tablets) immediately. A forgotten dose can be taken as soon as you remember, but not if it is almost time for the next dose. Never double the next dose to compensate for the missed tablets.

Who can use Pro-Banthine tablets?

Pro-Banthine tablets are for people over 18 years of age only; they are not for children. Women who are pregnant, breast feeding or making plans for either; and people who are older or who have Down's syndrome should consult their doctor before taking these tablets.

Allergies to Pro-Banthine or any other ingredients in this medicine prohibit use of Pro-Banthine tablets. Pro-Banthine tablets are also not prescribed for people with a gastrointestinal tract that is obstructed, inflamed, or has problems functioning normally. Such conditions have symptoms including abdominal pain, bloating, acid reflux or fever, and may be known as paralytic ileus, toxic megacolon, pyloric stenosis, hiatus hernia, or severe ulcerative colitis.

Pro-banthine tablets could worsen any existing problem, such as a urinary tract obstruction, conditions characterised by muscle weakness, heart conditions after major bleeding, enlarged prostate, and closed angle glaucoma. Several conditions require you to seek advice before taking Pro-Banthine tablets, including diarrhoea (especially with a colostomy or ileostomy), gastrointestinal reflux, ulcerative colitis, heart disease or problems, high blood pressure, kidney or liver problems, autonomic neuropathy, overactive thyroid gland, or fever.
