How does Drotin (Drotaverine) work?

Drotin 40mg contains Drotaverine as an active ingredient, which belongs to a class of medications called antispasmodic medicines. It works by inhibiting phosphodiesterase, hydrolyzing cAMP, increasing cAMP concentration, decreasing Ca uptake of the cells, and converting the distribution of calcium among the cells.
