Pharmacological properties.

Pharmacodynamics

Potassium orotate has a general stimulating effect on metabolic processes, is involved in protein and carbohydrate metabolism. The main structural element of Potassium orotate is orotic acid.

Orotic acid provides the synthesis of pyrimidine bases (uracil, thiamine, cytosine) in the synthesis of nucleic acids involved in the synthesis of protein molecules. As a result of participation in carbohydrate metabolism, orotic acid normalizes galactose metabolism.

Potassium orotate as an anabolic agent is used to restore disorders of protein metabolism and stimulate metabolic processes.

Pharmacokinetics

Not investigated.

Clinical characteristics.

Indications.

Combined therapy of diseases of the liver and biliary tract caused by acute and chronic intoxications (except for cirrhosis with ascites), myocardial dystrophy, myocardial infarction, stage II-III chronic heart failure, arrhythmias (extrasystoles), alimentary and alimentary-infectious hypotrophy in children, progressing muscular dystrophy, anemia, galactosemia, dermatoses.

They are also used for increased physical exertion and during the recovery period after serious illness.

Contraindications

Hypersensitivity to the active substance and to other components of the drug. cirrhosis of the liver with ascites, acute and severe chronic renal failure, lymphogranulomatosis, malignant diseases of the hematopoiesis, hyperkalemia.

Interaction with other drugs and other types of interactions.

The effectiveness of Potassium orotate increases with simultaneous use with folic acid and cyanocobalamin.

Potassium orotate improves tolerance to cardiac glycosides (e.g. digoxin, celanide).

With simultaneous use with potassium-sparing diuretics, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, the development of hyperkalemia is possible.

The drug can be used simultaneously with vitamins, cardiotonic drugs.

Astringents and enveloping agents (for example, de-nol, sucralfate, algeldrate, magnesium hydroxide, bismuth preparations) can slightly reduce the absorption of Potassium orotate in the digestive tract.

With the simultaneous use of glucocorticosteroids, insulin, muscle relaxants, oral contraceptives, the effectiveness of orotic acid decreases.

Features of the application.

Potassium orotate cannot be used for potassium replacement therapy.

Potassium orotate should not be used with meals due to the possibility of its interaction with food components.

The drug contains lactose, therefore its use is contraindicated in patients with rare hereditary conditions, such as galactose intolerance, lactase deficiency, glucose-galactose malabsorption syndrome.

If you are intolerant of certain sugars, consult your doctor before taking this medicine.

Use during pregnancy or lactation.

The use of the drug during pregnancy is possible only when the expected benefit to the mother outweighs the potential risk to the fetus.

Overdose.

With prolonged use, allergic dermatoses are observed, which requires desensitizing therapy; hyperkalemia requiring discontinuation of the drug.

If used in high doses, following a diet with a low protein content, liver dystrophy may develop, which requires drug withdrawal and appropriate therapy.

Possible increased side effects.

Adverse Reactions

The drug is usually well tolerated. in some cases, allergic reactions (including dermatitis, skin rashes) and dyspeptic reactions (including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea), which quickly disappear when the drug is canceled, are possible.
