The antiseptic action of Coli-urinal depends mainly upon the presence of hesamine, which is in acid urine slowly hydrolyaed to formaldehyde and ammonia. The peak concentration of formaldehyde is attained in 2 hours which acts as potent antisaptic that may be effective in some cases where other antibacterials fail (specially chronic cases). Khellin by its direct relaxant acfion on the smooth muscles relieves the colic which usually associates urinary disorders. Piperazine adds to the benefit of Coli-urinal by increasing uric acid excretion and dissolving urate crystals. Coli-urinal is readily absorbed from GIT and is rapidly eliminated in the urine.
