Pharmacological properties

the active substance of the drug fencarol is a derivative of quinuclidylcarbinol, which reduces the effect of histamine on organs and systems. Quifenadine is a competitive blocker of H1 receptors. in addition, it activates the diamine oxidase enzyme, which breaks down about 30% of endogenous histamine. this explains the effectiveness of Quifenadine in patients insensitive to other antihistamines. Hiphenadine penetrates poorly through the BBB and has little effect on the processes of deamination of serotonin in the brain, weakly affects the activity of MAO. the antihistamine properties of Quifenadine are associated with the presence of a cyclic quinuclidine nucleus in the structure and the distance between the diphenylcarbinol group and the nitrogen atom. Quifenadine is superior to diphenhydramine in antihistamine activity and duration of action. reduces the toxic effect of histamine, in particular, eliminates or weakens its bronchoconstrictor effect and spasmodic effect on the smooth muscles of the intestine, has a moderate antiserotonin and weak cholinolytic effect, pronounced antipruritic and desensitizing properties. Quifenadine reduces the severity of the hypotensive effect of histamine and its effect on the permeability of capillaries, does not directly affect cardiac activity and hell, does not have a protective effect in aconitic arrhythmias.

Quifenadine does not have a depressing effect on the central nervous system, but with individual hypersensitivity, a weak sedative effect is possible. The drug has low lipophilicity, so its content in brain tissues is low (0.05%), which explains the absence of a depressing effect on the central nervous system.

Pharmacokinetics Hifenadine is rapidly absorbed in the digestive tract and after 30 minutes the drug is determined in the tissues of the body. Cmax in plasma it is achieved in 1 hour. Metabolites and an unchanged part of Quifenadine are mainly excreted in urine, bile and excreted by the lungs within 48 hours. Fencarol is metabolized in the liver.

Interactions

Fencarol does not enhance the inhibitory effect of alcohol and sleeping pills on the central nervous system. fencarol has weak m-anticholinergic properties, therefore, by reducing motility, the gastrointestinal tract is able to enhance the absorption of slowly absorbed drugs (for example, anticoagulants of the indirect action of the coumarin series).
