Acotiamide

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Acotiamide - a prokinetic agent with gastrointestinal (gi) motility enhancing activity. Although the exact mechanism by which acotiamide exerts its effect has yet to be fully elucidated, this agent appears to inhibit acetylcholinesterase (ache), an enzyme responsible for the breakdown of acetylcholine (ach). Increased ach concentrations lead to an improvement of gastric emptying and gi motility and eventually to a reduction of dyspepsia symptoms.
