Brupacil is the brand name of a spasmolytic drug, formed by butylhyoscine bromide. It is used to treat intestinal, stomach, bile duct and urinary tract spasms . Two presentations of this drug are handled: as Brupacil, which contains only butylhioscine bromide, and as compound Brupacil , which also contains sodium metamizole.Brupacil works by reducing and eliminating spasms in various organs, relieving pain and colic. Spasms are involuntary contractions in muscle tissue, which are painful because of their intensity. When butylhyoscine bromide is combined with metamizole, analgesic properties are obtained, fighting pain more effectively.
