Ethoxidol tablets Pharmacodynamics
Ethoxidol is an inhibitor of free radical processes, has membranoprotective, antihypoxic, nootropic, anticonvulsant, anxiolytic effect, increases the body’s resistance to stress. Etoxidol® has anti-ischemic properties, improves blood flow in ischemic area, limits the area of ischemic injury, shows hypolipidemic action, reduces the content of total cholesterol and low-density lipoproteins.
Ethoxidol tablets increase the body’s resistance to various damaging factors, to oxygen-dependent pathological conditions (shock, hypoxia and ischemia, cerebral circulation disorders, intoxication with alcohol and antipsychotic drugs (neuroleptics)).
The drug improves cerebral metabolism and blood supply to the brain, improves microcirculation and blood rheological properties, reduces platelet aggregation. It stabilizes membrane structures of blood cells (erythrocytes and platelets) during hemolysis.
The mechanism of action of Ethoxidol tablets is due to its antioxidant, antihypoxant and membrane-protective effects. It inhibits lipid peroxidation, increases superoxidase activity, increases lipid-protein ratio, reduces membrane viscosity and increases its fluidity. Modulates the activity of membrane-bound enzymes (calcium independent phosphodiesterase, adenylate cyclase, acetylcholinesterase), receptor complexes (benzodiazepine, GABA, acetylcholine), which increases their ability to bind to ligands, helps maintain the structural and functional organization of biomembranes, transport neurotransmitters and improve synaptic transmission.
