Medication information of atropine tablets

Atropine is an antimuscarinic or anticholinergic used to reduce spasms of the muscles of the stomach and intestinal wall. Atropine tablets are used to relieve stomach cramps, abdominal pain, or conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Atropine blocks muscarinic receptors on the surface of muscle cells in the intestinal wall and prevents acetylcholine from attaching to them. By preventing this connection, the intestinal muscles relax and unwanted contractions and muscle spasms are reduced.
