Anti diarrhoeals & laxative

  1. 1. WELCOME

  3. 3. CONTENTSDIARRHOEAANTIDIARRHOEALSCONSTIPATIONLAXATIVESCONCLUSION
  4. 4. DIARRHOEALoose bowel movements resulting into the frequent passageof water, uniformed stools with or without mucous and blood.ClassificationOsmotic diarrhoeaSomething in the bowel is drawing water from the body intothe bowel.Eg; Sorbitol is not absorbed by the body but draws waterfrom the body into the bowel, resulting in diarrhoea.
  5. 5. Secretory diarrhoeaOccurs when the body is releasing water into the bowel,many infections, drugs causes secretory diarrhoea.Exudative diarrhoeaDiarrhoea with the presence of blood and pus in the stool.This occurs with inflammatory bowels disease (IBD), such ascrohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis etc.
  6. 6. Acute diarrhoeaSudden onset in a previously healthy personLasts from 3 days to 2 weeksSelf-limitingResolves without sequelaeChronic diarrhoeaLasts for more than 3 weeks.Associated with recurring passage of diarrhoeal stools, fever,loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and chronicweakness
  7. 7. CAUSES OF DIARRHOEAAcute DiarrhoeaBacterialViralDrug inducedNutritionalProtozoalChronic DiarrhoeaTumoursDiabetesAddison’s diseaseHyperthyroidismIrritable bowel syndromeE. Coli bacteria Rotavirus
  8. 8. DRUG THERAPYi. Specific antimicrobial drugsii. Non specific antidiarrhoeal drugsORALREHYDRATIONTHERAPY
  9. 9. Specific anti microbial drugsA. Antimicrobials are of no valueDue to non infective causes such asIrritable bowel syndromeColic diseasePancreatic enzyme deficiency etcRota virus causes acute diarrhoea, specially in children
  10. 10. B. Antimicrobials are regularly usefulcholeraTetracyclines,chloramphenicoletcClostridiumdifficileVancomycin,metronidazole etcamoebiasisMetronidazole,dioxonidfuroate
  11. 11. NON SPECIFIC ANTIDIARROEALS1.Adsorbents Have the power of adsorbing gases,toxins etc without any chemicalreactions.Eg; kaolin, pectin, calcium carbonate. Etc
  12. 12. 2.Anti secretory Agents which reduce the secretionEg; aspirin, sulphasalazine, bismuth sub salicylate, atropineetc.3.Antimotility drugs Increase small bowel tone and segmenting activity. Helps reabsorption of water by delaying intestinal transittimeEg: codeine, loperamide, diphenoxylate etc
  13. 13. Functions of Antidiarrhoeal DrugsDecrease irritation to the intestinal wallBlock GI muscle activity to decrease movementAffect CNS activity to cause GI spasm and stopmovementRelief of symptoms and fluid & electrolyte loss
  14. 14. Many OTC antidiarrhoeal drugs, contain limited amountsof opioids (loperamide) aluminium hydroxide, kaolin andpectin.PRECAUTIONS Care should be taken when using antidiarrhoeals if thecause of the diarrhoea is bacterial as this allows thebacterial toxin to remain in the body. Excess use may cause constipation
  15. 15. Non Specific Antidiarrhoeal DrugsAdsorbents Coat the walls of the GI tract Bind to the causative bacteria or toxin, which is theneliminated through the stool Examples: bismuth subsalicylate, kaolin-pectin, activatedcharcoal.
  16. 16. Side EffectsIncreased bleeding timeConstipation, dark stoolsConfusion, twitchingHearing loss, tinnitus, metallic taste, blue gums
  17. 17. Anti secretory Agents which reduce the secretion Decrease intestinal muscle tone and peristalsis of GI tract Result: slowing the movement of faecal matter through theGI tract Examples: belladonna alkaloids, atropine, sulphasalazine,hyoscyamine
  18. 18. Side effectsUrinary retention, hesitancy, impotenceHeadache, dizziness, confusion, anxiety, drowsinessDry skin, rash, flushingBlurred vision, photophobia, increased intraocularpressureHypotension, hypertension, bradycardia, tachycardia
  19. 19. Antimotility drugsDecrease bowel motility and relieve rectal spasmsDecrease transit time through the bowel, allowing moretime for water and electrolytes to be absorbedExamples: codeine, loperamide, diphenoxylate
  20. 20. Side effectsDrowsiness, sedation, dizziness, lethargyNausea, vomiting, anorexia, constipationRespiratory depressionBradycardia, palpitations, hypotensionUrinary retentionFlushing, rash, urticaria

Metabolism of SulphasalazineSulphasalazine[H]GutNH2OHOOH5- Amino salicylic acid+HOSNNOProdrug, having low solubility and poorly absorbed fromileum. The azo bond split by column bacteria into Sulfa pyridineand 5-amino salicylic acid.Blocks cyclooxgenase and lypooxygenase pathway andreduce mucosal secretion.
  27. 27. Laxatives
  28. 28. CONSTIPATIONConstipation is the infrequent and/or unsatisfactorydefecation fewer than 3 times per week.Abnormally infrequent and difficult passage of faeces throughthe lower GI tractSymptom, not a diseaseDisorder of movement through the colon and/or rectum
  29. 29. CAUSES OF CONSTIPATIONDiet Lack of exercise Age Irregular bowel habits Drug induced Disease States/ConditionsSpasm of sigmoid colonDysfunction of myenteric plexus
  30. 30. SYMPTOMS OF CONSTIPATIONInfrequent defecationNauseaVomitingAnorexiaFeeling full quicklyStools that are small, hard, and/or difficultto evacuateRectal bleedingWeight loss (in chronic constipation)
  31. 31. • Mild action,elimination of softstools but formedstools.Laxative oraperients• Stronger actionresulting in morefluid evacuation.Purgative orcatharticLAXATIVESDrugs that promote evacuation of bowels.Based on intensity of action
  32. 32. Classification• Methyl cellulose,ispaghula1. Bulkforming• Liquid paraffin2. Stoolsoftener
  33. 33. Diphenylmethanes• Bisacodyl, phenolphthalein, sodiumpicosulphate.Anthraquinones• Senna, cascara sagrada5HT4agonist • TegaserodFixedoil • Castor oil3. Stimulantpurgative
  34. 34. 4. Osmotic purgative Magnesium salts, lactuloseetcBulk Forming LaxativesImprove stool consistency and frequency with regular useEnsure good fluid intake to prevent faecal impactionOnset of action 2-3 daysSide Effects may include bloating, flatulence, distension
  35. 35. Stool SoftenersMay be useful with anal fissures of haemorrhoidsLiquid paraffin is not recommended for treatment ofconstipation- risk of aspiration and lipid pneumonia- long term use may result in depletion of VitaminsA, D, E and K
  36. 36. Stimulant Laxatives Increase intestinal motility by stimulating colonic nerves Useful with opioids Onset of action 8-12 hours Development of tolerance is reported to be uncommon Generally considered 2nd line therapy in elderly due to riskof electrolyte disturbances Other adverse effects include cramping, diarrhoea,dehydration
  37. 37. Osmotic LaxativesIncrease fecal water contentResult: bowel distention, increased peristalsis,and evacuationImproving stool frequencyOnset of action – up to 48 hoursMetabolized by bacteria flatulence

  42. 42. CONCLUSIONGood nutrition and hygiene can prevent mostdiarrhoea.Patients should be instructed to increase fluidintake and participate in regular exercise to preventconstipation.
