Description: round beveled white pills.
Pharmacotherapeutic group: cholinesterase inhibitor.
ATX code: N07AA.
Neiromidin is reversible cholinesterase inhibitor that directly stimulate impulse conduction in neuromuscular synapse and in the central nervous system (CNS) due to blockade of potassium channels of the membrane. Neiromidin enhances the effect on smooth muscle not only acetylcholine, epinephrine and serotonin. histamine and oxytocin. Neiromidin has the following pharmacological effects:
The drug has no teratogenic, embryotoxic, mutagenic, carcinogenic and immunotoxic action. No effect on the endocrine system.
After oral administration, the drug is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. The maximum plasma concentration is reached after one hour. 40-55% of the active substance are bound to plasma proteins. Neiromidin rapidly enters the tissue and stabilization step in the blood plasma is found only 2% of the active substance. The drug is metabolized in the liver. Excretion via the renal and extrarenal (through the gastrointestinal tract). The half-life is 40 minutes. Excretion of the drug Neiromidin kidneys occurs primarily by tubular secretion, and only 1/3 of the drug is released by glomerular filtration.
Indications for use. Diseases of the peripheral nervous system (neuritis, polyneuritis and polyneuropathy, poliradikulopatii, myasthenia gravis and the myasthenic syndrome of various etiologies); bulbar paralysis and paresis; recovery period of organic lesions of the central nervous system, accompanied by movement disorders; Combination Therapy of demyelinating diseases; intestinal atony.
Contraindications. Hypersensitivity to any component of the drug, epilepsy, extrapyramidal disease with hyperkinesis, angina pectoris, bradycardia, bronchial asthma, intestinal obstruction or urinary tract, vestibular disorders, gastric ulcer or duodenal ulcer in the acute stage of pregnancy and lactation, children's age.Be wary of: gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, thyrotoxicosis, diseases of the cardiovascular system, as well as patients with obstructive diseases of the respiratory system, or a history of acute respiratory diseases.
Dosage and administration. Inside. Dose and duration of treatment is determined individually depending on the severity of the disease.Peripheral nervous system diseases, myasthenic gravis syndrome and 10-20 mg (0.5-1 tablet) 1-3 times a day. The course of treatment is one to two months. If necessary, treatment can be repeated several times with a break between courses in 1 -2 months.To prevent myasthenic crises with severe disorders of neuromuscular conduction briefly parenterally administered 1-2 ml (15-30 mg) Neiromidin 1.5% solution for injection, and then continue treatment Neiromidin tablets, the dose can be increased to 20-40 mg ( 1-2 tablets) 5 times a day.
Treatment and prevention of intestinal atony: 20 mg (one tablet) 2-3 times a day for 1-2 weeks.
If the next dose is not accepted in time, it does not take further.
The maximum daily dose of 200 mg.
Side effects. Cause excitation of m-cholinergic receptors: salivation, sweating, palpitations, nausea, diarrhea, jaundice, bradycardia, epigastric pain, increased allocation of the bronchi secretion, convulsions. Drooling and bradycardia can be reduced m-holinoblokators (atropine, etc.).Rarely, after using the higher doses were observed dizziness, headache, vomiting, weakness, drowsiness, skin and allergic reactions (itching, rash). In these cases, reduce the dose or short-term (1-2 days) interrupt drug.These side effects occur in less than 10% of patients.
The appearance of side effects during treatment with it is imperative to inform the treating physician.
Overdose. When drug poisoning Neiromidin immediately call a doctor.
Symptoms: loss of appetite, bronchial spasm, lacrimation, sweating, pupillary constriction, nystagmus, increased motility of the gastrointestinal tract, spontaneous defecation and urination, vomiting, jaundice, bradycardia, a violation of intracardiac conduction, arrhythmias, lowering blood pressure, restlessness, anxiety, agitation , anxiety, ataxia, seizures, coma, speech disorders, drowsiness and weakness. Treatment: gastric lavage, the use of m-anticholinergics (atropine, cyclodol, metacin, etc...), Symptomatic therapy.
During treatment should refrain from driving and activities potentially hazardous activities that require high concentration and psychomotor speed reactions.
Interaction with other medicinal products. If you are taking other drugs, inform your doctor.Neiromidin enhances the sedative effect in combination with the means oppressive central nervous system. The action and the side effects are enhanced when used together with other cholinesterase inhibitors and nicotinic-m means. In patients with myasthenia increases the risk of cholinergic crisis, if used in conjunction with other Neiromidin cholinergic agents. The risk of bradycardia. If β-blockers were used prior to the start of treatment Neiromidin. The drug can be used in combination with Cerebrolysin.
It weakens the inhibitory effect on neuromuscular transmission and conduction of excitation along the peripheral nerves of local anesthetics, aminoglycosides potassium chloride.
Alcohol increases the side effects of the drug.
