Cisapride Micro Pellets MUPS
Cisapride is a gastroprokinetic agent, a drug which increases motility in the upper gastrointestinal tract.
It acts as a serotonin 5-HT4 receptor agonist and indirectly as a parasympathomimetic.
Stimulation of the serotonin receptors increases acetylcholine release in the enteric nervous system.
It has been sold under the trade names Prepulsid (Janssen-Ortho) and Propulsid (in the U.S.).
It was discovered by Janssen Pharmaceutica in 1980. In many countries it has been either withdrawn from the market or had its indications limited because of side effects.
