How it works:

Hidrasec contains ‘Racecadotril’ which is a prodrug (inactive form) that gets converted into ‘thiorphan’ (active form) which acts on the epithelium tissues of the small intestine.

It helps in decreasing the intestinal hypersecretion (losing) of electrolytes and water induced by the cholera toxin or inflammation. Thus, this exerts rapid antidiarrheal action, without changing the duration of intestinal transit.
