Ascophen Pharmacodynamics
A combination drug containing paracetamol, acetylsalicylic acid and caffeine.
Acetylsalicylic acid has antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effects, relieves pain, especially caused by inflammation, and inhibits platelet aggregation and thrombosis, improves microcirculation in the inflamed area.
Caffeine increases reflex excitability of the spinal cord, excites respiratory and vasomotor centers, dilates blood vessels of skeletal muscles, brain, heart, kidneys, reduces platelet aggregation; reduces sleepiness, fatigue, increases mental and physical performance. In this combination, caffeine at a low dose has almost no stimulating effect on the central nervous system, but increases the tone of the cerebral vessels and helps accelerate blood flow.
Paracetamol has analgesic, antipyretic and very weak anti-inflammatory effects due to its influence on the thermoregulation center in the hypothalamus and a weak ability to inhibit the synthesis of prostaglandins (Pg) in peripheral tissues.
