pharmachologic effectThe drug, which activates the metabolism in tissues, reduces tissue hypoxia, improves trophism and stimulates the regeneration process. It is hemoderivate, which is obtained by dialysis and ultrafiltration (penetrate compounds with a molecular mass of less than 5,000 daltons). It has a positive effect on glucose transport and utilization, stimulates oxygen consumption (which leads to stabilization of plasma membranes of cells during ischemia and reduced lactate formation), thus possessing an antihypoxic effect. Actovegin increases the concentration of ATP, ADP, phosphocreatine, as well as amino acids (glutamate, aspartate) and GABA. The effect of Actovegin begins to appear no later than 30 minutes (10-30 minutes) after parenteral administration and reaches its maximum, on average, after 3 hours (2-6 hours).

In case of radiation cystitis, 10 ml are administered daily transurethrally in combination with antibacterial therapy.
special instructionsIn connection with the potential for the development of anaphylactic reactions, it is recommended to conduct a test (test injection of 2 ml IM) before the start of the infusion.
