Hi, thanks for asking in Healthcare Magic.

Sompraz d is a combination of esomeprazole and Domperidone. It is used in erosive GERD. Esomeprazole reduces acid secretion and Domperidone is a an anti emetic (given to treat vomiting). Colospa is Mebiverin, an anti spasmodic and relieves abdominal cramps.

While Colospa contaions 135 mg Colospa retard contains 200 mg per tablet. This has resulted in over dose. Also Colospa retard will release Mebiverin slowly leading to prolonged action. Constipation is the side effect of Mebiverine as the drug acts by reducing the intestinal motility (movement). It also causes dizziness and head ache.

But your symptoms may be due to Paralytic ileus, an acute condition where the small intestinal movements are completely paralyzed. This is due to overdose of Mebiverine which causes head ache severe abdominal pain, back pain and belching due to the reduced intestinal movement.

Stop Colospa Retard and visit your treating Dr immediately.
I hope this is useful to you.
