Description

Papaverine Pharmacodynamics
Papaverine reduces smooth muscle tone, has a vasodilator and antispasmodic effect. It is a phosphodiesterase enzyme inhibitor and causes intracellular accumulation of cyclic 3.5 adenosine monophosphate, which leads to disorders of smooth muscle contractility of internal organs (gastro-intestinal tract, respiratory and urogenital systems) and vessels and their relaxation during spastic states. In high doses it reduces excitability of the heart muscle and slows down intracardiac conduction. The effect on the central nervous system is weak (in high doses it has a sedative effect).

Indications
Smooth muscle spasm of: abdominal organs (cholecystitis, pylorospasm, spastic colitis); renal colic, peripheral blood vessels (endarteritis); cerebral blood vessels, heart (angina pectoris – as a part of complex therapy); bronchospasm
