Aminopentamide hydrogen sulfate reduces the amplitude and tone of colonic contractions. It also reduces gastric secretions and gastric acidity. The effects of aminopentamide hydrogen sulfate are similar to those of atropine but it is more specific for the gastrointestinal tract and has less mydriatic and salivary effects.
