Pharmacotherapeutic group: Anti-inflammatory drugs; Anti-allergic agents, excluding corticosteroids; ATC-code: A07EB01.
Sodium cromoglicate exerts a stabilizing effect on mast cells, from which transfer agents ("mediators") are released. Mediator release causes local inflammation in gastrointestinal disorders, which causes gastrointestinal symptoms or allows absorption of substances containing antigen leading to systemic and local allergic reactions.
Absorption after oral dosage is low (< 1 %).
No details are known.
