GI stimulants

What are GI stimulants

Gastrointestinal stimulants are drugs that increase motility of the gastrointestinal smooth muscle, without acting as a purgative. These drugs have different mechanisms of action but they all work to move the contents of the gastrointestinal tract faster. Gastrointestinal stimulants are used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease and other gastrointestinal conditions where gastrointestinal movement is slowed.

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
