1 ml of the solution contains pyridoxine hydrochloride 50 mg;

excipient: water for injection.

Dosage form.


Basic physical and chemical properties: transparent, colorless or slightly yellowish solution.

Pharmacotherapeutic group.

Simple vitamin preparations. pyridoxine (vitamin B6).

Code ATX A11N A02.

Pharmacological properties.


The drug is a water-soluble vitamin B6 (pyridoxine).

Vitamin B6 plays an important role in metabolism; necessary for the normal functioning of the central and peripheral nervous system, is involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters.

In the body, it is phosphorylated to pyridoxal-5-phosphate, a coenzyme of the reactions of decarboxylation and transamination of amino acids. Actively involved in the metabolism of tryptophan, methionine, cysteine, glutamic acid and other amino acids, the exchange of histamine. It plays an important role in the transport of amino acids across the cell membrane.

Participates in the synthesis of protein, enzymes, porphyrins, hemoglobin, prostaglandins, in the exchange of serotonin, catecholamines, vitamin B6. It improves utilization of unsaturated fatty acids, normalizes lipid metabolism in atherosclerosis (lowers cholesterol and lipids), improves myocardial contractility, promotes the conversion of folic acid into its active form, and stimulates hematopoiesis.

With atherosclerosis and diabetes, it reduces the level of glycosylated hemoglobin. It has a diuretic effect, helps to reduce high blood pressure; potentiates the action of diuretics. In depression, it stimulates the formation of norepinephrine and serotonin. By binding to fibrinogen and specific amino groups on the surface of platelets, it inhibits their aggregation.


It is metabolized in the liver with the formation of pharmacologically active metabolites - pyridoxalphosphate and pyridoxaminophosphate. The binding of pyridoxalphosphate with plasma proteins is 90%. It penetrates well into all tissues; accumulates mainly in the liver, to a lesser extent - in the muscles and central nervous system. It crosses the placenta and into breast milk. The elimination half-life is 15–20 days. It is excreted by the kidneys (excess daily requirement is excreted unchanged), with intravenous administration with bile, about 2% is excreted. It is removed by hemodialysis.

Clinical characteristics.


Hypo - and vitamin deficiency vitamin b6. complex treatment of toxicosis in pregnant women, atherosclerosis, anemia (including sideroblastic), leukopenia, diseases of the nervous system (radiculitis, neuritis, neuralgia, parkinsonism, little disease), depression of involutional age, seborrheic and non-seborrheic dermatitis, herpes zoster, psoriasis, neurodermatitis exudative diathesis, with the removal of binge and a hangover syndrome. also prescribed for motion sickness and motion sickness, lesser disease. pyridoxine hydrochloride prevents or reduces toxic effects (especially polyneuritis) in the treatment of anti-TB drugs. treatment of pyridoxine-dependent seizures.


Increased individual sensitivity to the drug. peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum (due to a possible increase in the acidity of gastric juice). liver diseases that occur with severe functional impairment. coronary heart disease.

Interaction with other drugs and other types of interactions.

Pyridoxine enhances the effect of diuretics, weakens the antiparkinsonian activity of levodopa (but does not reduce the effectiveness of the combination of levodopa + carbidopa); potentiates the action of cardiac glycosides in patients with chronic heart failure; reduces the neurotoxic effect of isoniazid; prevents the development of ophthalmic complications that develop with prolonged use of resorptive chloramphenicol preparations (syntomycin, chloramphenicol); eliminates the side effects of tricyclic antidepressants due to anticholinergic activity (dry mouth, urinary retention); reduces the sleeping pill effect of sleeping pills and sedatives; weakens the effect of phenytoin; increases resistance to hypoxia when used with glutamic acid / Asparcam.

The effect of pyridoxine is weakened by penicillin, cycloserine, ethionamide, immunosuppressants, isoniazid, hormonal contraceptives, hydralazine sulfate; corticosteroids reduce the amount of vitamin B6 in the body.

Features of the application.

Pyridoxine metabolism decreases with regular use of alcohol. may cause a false positive test for urobilinogen using Ehrlich reagent.

Use during pregnancy or lactation.

During pregnancy, the drug should be prescribed only for pregnant women with toxicosis. use in large doses during pregnancy can lead to the development of a syndrome of dependence in newborns. when using the drug during lactation, a decrease in lactation is possible, therefore, during this period, the drug can be used only for health reasons.

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

The drug usually does not affect the ability to drive a car or work with complex mechanisms, however, the individual reaction of the body should be considered.

Dosage and administration.

Assign intramuscularly, intravenously or subcutaneously in cases where oral administration is not possible.

The course of treatment is individual and is determined by the type and severity of the disease.

Prepare the solution immediately before use - dilute a single dose of the drug in 1-2 ml of water for injection or 0.9% sodium chloride solution.
