Synergistic Effect of Racecadotril and Loperamide by Gastrointestinal Motility Test
The purpose of the study is to implicit spectacular effects of drug synergism, when two similarly mimicking drugs are administered concomitantly the effects are satisfying for the therapeutic effect expected. In this study two market available drugs Racecadotril and Loperamide were used in albino rat using Gastrointestinal Motility test as antidiarrheal screening model for studying the effects of these two drugs against diarrhoea synergistically. The results were quite satisfactorily achieved as per anticipation, further models can be used to confirm the same and also this might be the prerequisite for further development of a formulation in future.
