Description

Gopantam Pharmacodynamics
The action of Gopantam® is due to the presence of gamma-aminobutyric acid in its structure and its direct effect on the GABA-receptor-channel complex. The drug has nootropic and anticonvulsant effects. It increases resistance of the brain to hypoxia and toxic substances, stimulates anabolic processes in neurons, combines a moderate sedative effect with a mild stimulating effect, reduces motor excitability, activates mental and physical performance.
Improves gamma-aminobutyric acid metabolism in chronic alcohol intoxication and subsequent ethanol withdrawal.
Causes inhibition of pathologically increased bladder reflex and detrusor tone.

Indications
– Cognitive disorders in organic brain lesions, including those resulting from neuroinfections, traumatic brain injury and neurotic disorders;
– in extrapyramidal hyperkinesias, in patients with hereditary diseases of the nervous system in combination with the ongoing therapy;
– as corrector in side effects of neuroleptic drugs, in neuroleptic extrapyramidal syndrome (hyperkinetic and akinetic), as part of complex therapy in patients with cerebral organic insufficiency in schizophrenia;
– epilepsy with delayed mental processes in complex therapy with anticonvulsants;
– Psycho-emotional overload, decreased mental and physical performance, to improve concentration and memory;
– neurogenic disorders of urination (pollakiuria, imperative urges, imperative urinary incontinence, enuresis);
– children with developmental delays (mental, speech, motor, or a combination thereof), including those resulting from perinatal encephalopathy and children with various forms of infantile cerebral palsy;
– children with hyperkinetic disorders (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder);
