Instruction manual

For medical use of the drug

Urosept

(urosept)

Structure:

Active ingredient: pipemidic acid;

1 suppository contains pipemidic acid trihydrate in terms of dry substance 0.20 g (200 mg);

excipient: solid fat.

Dosage form.

Suppositories.

The main physico-chemical properties: suppositories of white or yellowish-white color, bullet-shaped. The presence of plaque on the surface of the suppository is allowed.

Pharmacotherapeutic group.

Antibacterial agents of the quinolone group.

ATX code is J01M B04.

Pharmacological properties.

Pharmacodynamics

Uroantiseptic of the quinolone series. It is bactericidal, active against most gram-negative microorganisms, as well as against some gram-positive microorganisms, in particular Staphylococcus aureus.

Pharmacokinetics

The maximum concentration of the drug in blood plasma is determined 2-3 hours after use and coincides in time with the maximum concentration of the drug in the urine. Excreted by the kidneys unchanged.

Clinical characteristics.

Indications.

Infectious and inflammatory diseases caused by microorganisms sensitive to pipemidic acid, including pyelonephritis, urethritis, cystitis, prostatitis, nonspecific colpitis.

Contraindications

Hypersensitivity to pipemidic acid, quinolones or any other components of the drug. severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance less than 10 ml / min), severe hepatic impairment. cirrhosis of the liver, porphyria. diseases of the central nervous system (epilepsy, neurological conditions with a reduced convulsive threshold).

Interaction with other drugs and other types of interactions.

With prolonged use of pipemidic acid, the half-life of theophylline is prolonged, so its concentration in the blood serum increases by 40–80%. therefore, in patients taking theophylline, its serum level should be monitored more often.

Quinolones increase the serum concentration of caffeine; pipemidic acid can provide a coefficient of increase from 2 to 4.

The drug can enhance the effect of warfarin, rifampicin, cimetidine with their simultaneous use.

The simultaneous use of quinolones and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs increases the risk of seizures.

Antacids (preparations of aluminum, magnesium and calcium) and sucralfate significantly reduce the absorption of pipemidic acid, so they should not be prescribed at the same time. The interval between injections of these drugs should be 2-3 hours. However, this effect was not observed with simultaneous use with cimetidine and ranitidine.

With aminoglycosides, a synergistic bactericidal effect occurs.

Features of the application.

During treatment, patients should take plenty of fluids.

In single cases, Urosept can cause seizures, therefore, for patients with epilepsy and other neurological diseases with a reduced seizure threshold, treatment is contraindicated.

Due to the risk of acute porphyrin crisis, treatment of patients with porphyria is contraindicated.

Caution is advised to prescribe the drug to patients over the age of 70 years, since side effects in elderly people were observed more often.

The patient should be warned about the need to avoid direct sunlight and artificial ultraviolet radiation during treatment with pipemidic acid due to possible photosensitivity.

Superinfection caused by persistent bacteria and fungi may develop.

With caution, the drug should be used in the treatment of patients with a deficiency of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, since quinolones can cause acute hemolytic crisis.

With prolonged treatment with pipemidic acid, pseudomembranous colitis may develop, therefore, in case of diarrhea in the patient, appropriate measures should be taken.

Treatment with pipemidic acid can alter the intestinal flora, resulting in an increase in the number of Clostridum difficile bacteria, and, accordingly, pseudomembranous colitis may develop.

In adolescents, taking the drug can affect temporary cartilage, so the use of pipemidic acid is contraindicated in children under the age of 18 years.

Allergic reactions often occur in individuals with hypersensitivity to acetylsalicylic acid.

Laboratory tests. A false-positive reaction to glucose in the urine may be observed.

Use during pregnancy or lactation.

The drug is contraindicated for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

The ability to influence the reaction rate when driving vehicles or other mechanisms.

When using the drug, one should refrain from driving vehicles or working with other mechanisms, as dizziness and visual impairment are possible (see the section “Adverse Reactions”).

Dosage and administration.

Before applying the suppository, you must:

  • tear 1 suppository in the primary package along the perforation line of the blister pack;
  • then you need to pull the edges of the film, tearing it in different directions, and release the suppository from the primary packaging.

Treatment. If the patient has not lost consciousness as a result of taking a large amount of the drug, it is recommended to induce vomiting, rinse the stomach and prescribe activated charcoal.

Pipemidic acid is excreted by hemodialysis (90% in 6 hours).

If side effects from the central nervous system (including epileptiform convulsions) occur, prescribe symptomatic treatment (diazepam).

Adverse Reactions

Local reactions: irritation, pain, itching at the injection site.

Systemic reactions:

on the part of the blood and lymphatic system: eosinophilia is rarely possible, and in elderly patients and patients with impaired renal function, reverse thrombocytopenia was observed. In individuals with a deficiency of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase hemolytic anemia is possible;

mental disorders: agitation, depression, confusion, hallucinations;

from the nervous system: tremor, sleep disturbances, sensory disturbances, dizziness; very rarely - cramps, vertigo, headache;

on the part of the organs of vision: visual impairment;

on the part of the skin and subcutaneous tissues: hypersensitivity reactions, which include skin rashes, itching, photosensitivity, Stevens-Johnson syndrome; rarely - angioedema. Skin reactions are reversible. There are reports of the development of anaphylactic reactions.

from the musculoskeletal system: acute arthropathy, tendonitis.
