Active ingredients

The drug ACOLIC contains a combination of these active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs):

1 Simethicone
UNII 92RU3N3Y1O - DIMETHICONE

Simethicone is a chemically inert, non-systemic gastric defoaming agent that works by altering the elasticity of interfaces of mucus-embedded bubbles in the gastrointestinal tract. The gas bubbles are thus broken down or coalesced and in this form gas is more easily eliminated through eructation or passing flatus.
