Doltrix is the brand name of an antispasmodic drug , made up of lysine clonixinate and butylhyoscine bromide. This combination of drugs has the effect of relieving spasms , which are painful and involuntary muscle contractions. This relief is selective at the visceral level, that is, of the organs.Doltrix blocks the transmission of preganglionic fibers to the autonomic ganglia. Thus, it has a ganglioplegic action and prevents visceral spasm, which causes vascular compression. Due to lysine clonixinate, Doltrix is ​​an anti- inflammatory and analgesic agent , with action based on repressing the synthesis of prostaglandins , substances that respond with inflammation and pain.
