Pharmacological properties

xantinol nicotinate has the effects of theophylline and nicotinic acid: the mechanism of action is realized due to the blockade of PDE activity, competition with adenosine for receptors, accumulation of cAMP, stimulation of the synthesis of nicotinamide coenzymes and prostanticycline in the walls of blood vessels. the drug dilates peripheral blood vessels, improves collateral and cerebral blood flow, reduces manifestations of cerebral hypoxia, reduces platelet aggregation, improves microcirculation in the retina, enhances contractile function of the heart, improves metabolic processes in the brain tissue in the postoperative period, reduces the level of cholesterol, atherogenic lipoproteins, and urinary acid, fibrinogen, increases the activity of lipoprotein lipase, enhances fibrinolysis.

Pharmacokinetics It is well absorbed in the digestive tract. In the body, the drug quickly turns first into theophylline and nicotinic acid, then into their metabolites. Excreted mainly with urine in the form of metabolites. With a / m introduction, the effect develops after 5-10 minutes.
