Meksidol: pharmachologic effect

Antioxidant drugs. It has antihypoxia, membranoprotektornym, nootropic, anticonvulsant and anxiolytic effects. The drug increases the body's resistance to the action of various damaging factors, kislorodzavisimym to pathological states (shock, hypoxia and ischemia, cerebrovascular accidents, alcohol intoxication and antipsychotics / neuroleptics /).

Meksidol® It improves brain metabolism and blood flow to the brain, improves microcirculation and blood rheology, reduces platelet aggregation. It stabilizes the membrane structure of the blood cells (erythrocytes and platelets) when hemolysis. It has hypolipidemic effect, reduces total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein.

The mechanism of action Mexidol® due to its anti-hypoxic, antioxidant and membrane action. The drug inhibits lipid peroxidation, It increases the activity of superoksidoksidazy, increases the ratio of lipid-protein, reduces the viscosity of the membrane, increases its turnover. Meksidol® modulates the activity of membrane bound enzymes (calcium-independent phosphodiesterase, adenylate cyclase, acetylcholinesterase), receptor complexes (benzodiazepine, GABA, Acetylcholine), which increases their ability to bind to ligands, It helps to preserve the structural and functional organization of biological membranes, transport of neurotransmitters and improve synaptic transmission. Meksidol® increases the concentration of dopamine in the brain. Causes increased compensatory activation of aerobic glycolysis and decreased inhibition of oxidative processes in the Krebs cycle under hypoxic conditions with increasing ATP and phosphocreatine, activation of mitochondrial functions energosinteziruyuschih, stabilization of cell membranes.

Meksidol: pharmacokinetics


With the introduction of Mexidol® doses 400-500 mg Cmax Plasma is 3.5-4.0 ug / ml achieved for 0.45-0.5 no.

Excreted in the urine mainly in glyukuronokonyugirovannoy form and in small quantities – in unchanged form.
