DDW 2008 News—Acotiamide: New Med for GI Upset

A group of researchers tested a new medicine for control of postprandial distress syndrome (bloating and dyspepsia after meals). The new medicine, Acotiamide, improves digestive movement by reducing the gastric emptying time. In this report on a few hundered subjects with dyspepsia, researchers showed that Acotiamide relieved symptoms better than the placebo (58% of cases versus 48%, respectively). Although the researchers presented a postive study, the effect of the new medication could be considered modest at best for this indication. Acotiamide has yet to be approved by the FDA.
