The recommended dosage for adults ranges from 120 to 240 mg per day, divided into three doses. It's crucial to follow the prescribed guidelines provided by healthcare professionals. The medication can be taken with or without food, offering flexibility to accommodate individual preferences.

Common side effects may include mild hypotension, headache, and occasional nausea.

Drotaverine works by blocking an enzyme called phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4), which usually breaks down a molecule called cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP).

Some research suggests that elevating cAMP levels may have potential benefits in preventing brain tumors, adding an interesting aspect to the drug's effects.
