How does Hikin work?

Dr. Madhur Anand MBBS, MS , General Surgery

Hikin contains hyoscine (scopolamine) which is an anticholinergic agent that has anti-spasmodic properties. It works by relaxing the smooth muscles present in the stomach and gut. It also inhibits the contraction of smooth muscle, hence in this way, it provides relief from cramp, pain, and discomfort of the stomach. For motion sickness Hikin works by preventing the release of a chemical messenger (acetylcholine) from the vestibular system which causes motion sickness.
