The 9 best drugs for cramping

Review of the best according to the editors. About the selection criteria. The the material is subjective, is not advertising and is not serves as a guide to the purchase. Before purchase is needed consultation with a specialist.

Each of us, of course, knows what cramps and cramps are, and I’ve met this unpleasant phenomenon more than once in my life. However, if start to sort it out, you can notice some vagueness of these definitions. So, under convulsions most often in everyday life is understood painful reduction of any muscle group that is subject to our will. The most common cramp is calving in cold water while swimming, or cramping the same calf muscles after taking a large amount of diuretic drugs due to the development of hypokalemia.

The second thing that immediately comes as an example is convulsions muscles that occur during an attack of epilepsy. But epilepsy is This is a separate topic, and we will not skate here. After all epileptic seizures are usually a reduction in muscle groups, who themselves are not “to blame”, there are no violations in them, but an order epileptic discharges of the cortex are given to their massive reduction the brain, in which the first, main motor neurons for the muscles of the opposite half of the body.

What are cramps?

What then is called a spasm? Very often called spasms painful and muscle contractions, which in no way relate to striated muscles, and come from smooth muscles that are innervated by the autonomic nervous system. Simplest example smooth muscle spasm – for example, a kidney attack or hepatic colic, severity and aching pain in the intestines with development spastic constipation, and other similar conditions. Difference between skeletal muscle spasms and smooth muscle spasms obvious.

Smooth muscles control the functioning of internal organs, many of various sphincters bring them in reduction, exercise peristalsis, and also innervate the vessels. However when it comes to spasms, then here we will not mean the reduction of blood vessels, since generalized and local vascular spasm is treated, then there is vasospasm, sometimes with other drugs. However antispasmodics in complex therapy are used to treat certain vascular diseases, and on the “ambulance” successfully removed and increased blood pressure, especially if it doesn’t rise too much high.

This review will focus on those drugs which help get rid of painful smooth contractions muscles of the internal organs. Therefore this is a medicinal review unlikely to be of interest to patients who have cramps due to epilepsy, they have their own groups of drugs, about which was written in the next article. There will also be nothing here interesting to those patients who have a long spastic conditions in the muscles that develop after a stroke, and which is called post-stroke spasticity. Despite the obvious similarity between the words “spasm” and “spasticity” is an essential difference.

Muscle spasm that occurs in the muscles of the internal organs most often occurs for local reasons (e.g. the presence of parasites in the bile ducts, inflammation, the presence of sand or kidney stones, the irritating effect of feces in the presence of spastic constipation). Almost never here we are talking about the central mechanism, when the main neurons affect the spasm, located in the autonomic nervous system.

Who is useful and who is not useful for this article?

Post-stroke spasticity is due to a central lesion. motor neuron that lies in the cerebral cortex, and the absence of inhibitory effects on secondary neurons, which are in the front horns of the spinal cord. Being deprived control “from above”, they are disinhibited, and therefore, after a stroke, patients in some cases there is persistent muscle spasm, which cause pain and contracture in the affected muscles of the arms and legs. Just these muscles also controlled dead neurons that got into stroke focus in the area of ​​necrosis, and those who died in a brain disaster. For treat spasms using completely different drugs. Is not antispasmodics, and muscle relaxants, and at the same time – of central action. We have repeatedly described them in various articles about chronic back pain as a treatment for osteochondrosis, relief of symptoms of intervertebral hernias and protrusions. It is such medicines, such as Midokalm, Sirdalud or Baclofen. These medicines will not be considered in this review either, as do not have a vegetotropic effect, and effects on smooth muscles.

We will not talk about the classic calf spasms muscles, because in case of an overdose of diuretics, it is necessary compensate for hypokalemia with potassium, for example, immediately with with furosemide, give the patient 1/2 tablet of Panangin or Asparkam. IN in this case, potassium enters the body from the outside with some reserve, prevents hypokalemia. Therefore, painful syndrome in the calves does not develop at night.

You can name a few more groups of cramps and spasms, which treated with special drugs, for example, with:

  1. hypovitaminosis;
  2. blepharospasm, which refers to extrapyramidal disorders
  3. overdose of certain drugs, for example cervical spasm with excessive administration of haloperidol, especially in drug addicts;
  4. tetanus, which usually develops in the presence of deep stab wounds contaminated by the earth, and it begins to appear with convulsive contraction of the facial muscles, causing the so-called trismus of masticatory muscles, and “sardonic laughter”.

Muscle cramps and cramps can occur with overheating organism, with sunstroke, with excessive blood thickening, caused by dehydration, for example with cholera. All these pathological conditions, although they are spasms and convulsions, but they do not relate to the subject of this article.

Who will be interested in this material? This is a big group. patients with pathology of the gastrointestinal tract: with gastritis, pylorospasm, duodenitis, cholecystitis and cholecystopancreatitis. These are kidney stones patients who suffer from renal colic, faces with various forms of constipation, and especially with spastic constipation when intestinal motility suffers due to excessive and prolonged smooth reduction muscles. All these diseases are regularly accompanied. prolonged and persistent painful conditions that have several salient features. What are the symptoms of muscle cramping?

Manifestations and clinical signs

Spasms of the smooth muscles of internal organs – this is inaccurate localized pains. When a patient shows this pain, he is more likely uses the palm of his hand, and much less often – accurately shows with your finger. If we are talking about the striated muscles of the body and limbs, then the pain syndrome is usually localized pretty clearly, and its zone can be specified accurately.

This is due to the difference between the somatic nervous system, which innervates the muscles and the autonomic nervous system, which It is engaged in the innervation of the internal muscles of the body. They do not work so fast, these are “economic” muscles, and too detailed localization of feelings of internal pain is simply not needed, unlike external danger.

In addition, spasm, in addition to pain, is often accompanied by other signs. For example, damage to the gastrointestinal tract causes symptoms of upper, or gastric dyspepsia. This is most often heaviness, belching and heartburn, bloating, upper discomfort half of the abdomen, or in the epigastrium. Spasm of bile smooth muscle bladder and biliary tract, except pain in the right hypochondrium leads to nausea, vomiting, bitterness in the mouth, associated with the release of bile into the duodenum.

Renal colic has its own specific signs. Expressed spasm of the ureters, causes pain on a large vertical distance: often this pain radiates from the lower back to the groin, which gives back, accompanied by dysuric disorders, and may lead to obstruction by stone or sand urinary tract.

Painful muscle spasms often occur in gynecological patients, and may even be a normal option. So, the syndrome is known painful periods, (algodismenorrhea), in which too need to fight spasms.

Readers have already guessed that a group of drugs, which fights spasms, called myotropic antispasmodics action, that is, eliminating spasms of smooth muscles of internal organs.

How to treat spasms: antispasmodics

It has already been said that the smooth muscles of internal organs innervated by involuntary, autonomic muscles. AND since the role of the vegetative is sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system in the innervation of smooth muscles of internal organs is a decisive factor then among myotropic antispasmodics quite a few drugs that affect the activity of autonomic nervous system. So, the anticholinergic platyphyllin relax muscle blocking muscarinic cholinergic receptors, and directly with this sharp drop in smooth muscle tone pain in intestinal colic and ulcerative pain also decreases stomach disease, pancreatitis, dyskinesia of the paths and so on. Antispasmodics relax the vascular wall, lower blood pressure, and can affect the work of the heart, the tone of the bronchi, and cause various vegetative effects.

Before moving on to a review of myotropic antispasmodics and spasm medications, almost all of which are platyphylline hydrotartrate sold over-the-counter should be said about another very important role of these drugs: use in acute inflammatory lesions of the abdominal organs.

Only antispasmodics, no painkillers!

This phrase may be the motto of the surgeon who conservatively observes a patient suspected of a disaster in abdominal cavity: for example, with an attack of acute appendicitis. It is known that if you don’t operate such a patient in a timely manner, serious complications, such as perforation, are possible of the appendix, its rupture, the discharge of pus into the abdominal cavity, and the development of diffuse inflammation, that is, peritonitis.

Such complications can occur against the background of self-medication, with passion for painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs, as they really dull the pain, and reduce inflammation, but by no means able to eliminate the pathological process. Therefore, with acute appendicitis and with any other severe pain in the abdominal cavity, generally in the abdomen, and with any internal pain when possibly abdominal surgery is necessary, categorically it is forbidden to use painkillers and anti-inflammatory funds, for example, from the NSAID group.

You can only take antispasmodics of myotropic action. If a this pain is really functional, for example a thick spasm gut, then the patient will feel better, and perhaps no damage he has no serious diagnosis and surgery.

But in the event that there is no muscle spasm, and the pain is caused inflammation and suppuration, then no antispasmodic, no medicine from spasms, for example, No-shpa and Galidor will not help. In this case need an operation, and at the same time no blurry clinical picture, which may prevent the surgeon from determining the diagnosis, and is caused taking painkillers does not exist. After all, an analysis of the quality of pain, its nature, localization, and symptoms of peritoneal irritation are not will disappear, and will not change. Thus, the appointment of antispasmodics, and only antispasmodics for acute and unexpected pain in abdomen avoids serious complications. Now proceed to considering this diverse group of drugs for cure for spasm.

All medicines will be considered according to the standard scheme. At first, if any, an INN, or international non-proprietary name.
