Dexpanthenol Injection

Dexpanthenol is a synthetic version of pantothenic acid, which is a B complex vitamin found in a wide variety of plant and animal species. Dexpanthenol injections are administered to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and prevent and treat ileus after GI surgery. Dexpanthenol can also treat other GI conditions that involve impaired activity. This substance was approved by the FDA in 1948.

Mechanism of Action

The exact method of action for dexpanthenol is not known. The substance serves as a required precursor for acetylcholine synthesis, which in turn generates parasympathetic activity that regulates gastrointestinal action.
