Description

Teralizen Retard Pharmacodynamics
It is a derivative of phenothiazine. Alimemazine acts as a mild sedative and anti-anxiety drug, has a positive effect on senestopathy, obsessive compulsive disorder and phobia. It is used for psychosomatic manifestations developing due to neurovegetative disorders, vascular, traumatic and infectious disorders of the central nervous system. Its sedative effect helps to normalize sleep in patients of this category. It has antiemetic and anti-cough activity. Sedative and anxiolytic effect is caused by blockade of adrenoreceptors of reticular formation of the brain stem. Antiemetic and vegetative stabilizing effect is caused by blockade of dopamine D2-receptors of the trigger zone of the vomiting center. Because of its antihistamine activity, alimemazine is used for allergic diseases, especially of the respiratory tract, and for itching of the skin. Alimemazine is more active in antihistamine and sedative action than diprazine. The antipruritic action is due to its effect on type 1 histamine receptors.
