Dislep: Uses, Properties, Dosage, Side Effects, Precautions and Interactions

This medication is an antipsychotic and a prokinetic agent, prescribed for dyspepsia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and irritable bowel syndrome.

It is contraindicated in patients with gastrointestinal bleeding and intestinal obstruction.

Dyslexia treats psychosis, depression, frequent, persistent heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and indigestion (dyspepsia).

It also treats an upset stomach, heartburn, and occasional nausea. It is also used to treat diarrhea and help prevent traveler’s diarrhea.

It works by helping to slow the growth of bacteria that could be causing diarrhea. This product should not be used to self-treat diarrhea if you also have a fever or blood/mucus in your stool.

These could be signs of a severe health condition. See your doctor immediately for proper evaluation and treatment if you have these symptoms.

This medication is used under the supervision of a doctor with other medications to treat stomach ulcers caused by certain bacteria (Helicobacter pylori). Do not use this medicine to self-treat ulcers.


Bismuth subsalicylate is a salicylate. Salicylates can cause severe bleeding problems when used alone in patients with ulcers.

How to use the Chewable Stomach Relief Tablet

Take this medication by mouth, usually as needed, as directed on the product package, or as directed by your doctor.

There are many brands and forms of bismuth subsalicylate available. Please read the dosage instructions for each product carefully, as dosage instructions may differ between products.

If you are using the chewable tablets, chew each tablet well and swallow. If you are using the liquid form of this medicine, shake the bottle well before each dose. Measure the dose carefully with a special measuring device/cup.

This medicine can react with other medicines (such as tetracycline antibiotics and chloroquine), preventing them from being fully absorbed by the body.

If you are taking this medicine for diarrhea, tell your doctor if your diarrhea lasts longer than two days.

Properties of deep

The biochemical, pharmacological, and clinical data obtained from the two sulpiride isomers indicate that the antidopaminergic action, both centrally and peripherally, is due to the levorotatory enantiomer (levosulpiride).

Dyslexia increases the tone and range of gastric contractions in the patient affected by gastric stasis. Consequently, gastric urination in the open air relaxes the pyloric sphincter and increases duodenal and jejunal peristalsis leading to accelerated gastric evacuation and intestinal transit.

Due to these peculiar characteristics, pharmaceuticals can be used in endoscopic studies to overcome spasm and reflex or pyloric pulmonary hyperplasia in radiology of the digestive tract.

This is to shorten the scan time, promote antral expulsion of the contrast medium, and avoid troublesome compressive movements.

Dyslexia exerts a regulatory action on the central and peripheral nervous circuits that control the dynamics of the digestive system.

Controlled clinical studies show that Dislep is active for digestive disorders (anorexia, nausea, vomiting, etc.) of organic, functional, and iatrogenic nature.

Dyslexia considerably reduces the emesis induced by the more potent anticlastic agents (cisplatin, anthracycline).

Alone or in combination, in patients affected by metopodynia, it exerts a considerable pharmacological influence, reducing the frequency, duration, and intensity of crisis periods.

Dyslexia will generally not alter cardiac-respiratory parameters, kidney or bladder functions, or emetic crisis.

What are the caveats?

  • Caution should be exercised in patients with a history of neuroendocrine tumor, epilepsy, manic states, abnormally high prolactin levels in the blood, painful, lumpy breasts, heart disease, or any allergies during pregnancy and lactation.
  • It may cause dizziness or drowsiness; do not drive a car or operate machinery while taking this medicine.
  • Pheochromocytoma, epilepsy, manic states, hyperprolactinemia, breast dysplasia, malignant mastopathies, heart failure.
  • Specific disorders such as amenorrhea, gynecomastia, galactorrhea, and alteration of libido were observed for prolonged administration.
  • They refer to a reversible effect of Dislep on the functionality of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, similar to that known for many neuroleptics.
  • No side effects have been observed at the recommended dose in internal medicine.

However, at higher doses, drowsiness, numbness, and dyskinesia may occur due to their possible dangers; patients under treatment must be aware of these risks to avoid driving vehicles and attending operations that require full attention.

What are the side effects of dyslexia?

Side effects of this drug are rare.

  • The most common side effects are the darkening of the stool and tongue.
  • Postural hypotension (low blood pressure), Increased liver transaminases, Enlarged breasts, Increased body weight, and Irregular menstrual cycle.
  • Persistent vomiting/diarrhea can cause a significant loss of body water (dehydration).
  • Contact your doctor immediately if you notice any symptoms of dehydration, such as unusual decreased urination, unusual dry mouth/thirst, fast heartbeat, or dizziness/lightheadedness.
  • This medicine can rarely cause severe (rarely fatal) bleeding in the stomach or intestines.
  • Genitourinary: absence of menstrual period, enlarged breasts in men, spontaneous milk discharge, and changes in libido.
  • Potentially fatal: neuroleptic malignant syndrome.

If you notice any unlikely but severe side effects, stop taking this medicine and consult your doctor or pharmacist immediately: vomiting that looks like coffee grounds, black, tarry, or bloody stools, and persistent abdominal and stomach pain.


Before taking deep, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you are allergic to aspirin, salicylates (such as salsalate), or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen, naproxen, celecoxib; or if you have any other allergies.

This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems.

This medicine may contain aspartame. If you have phenylketonuria (PKU) or any other condition that requires you to restrict your intake of aspartame (or phenylalanine), consult your doctor or pharmacist about the safe use of this medication.
