Corvalol Pharmacodynamics
Combined drug, has a sedative and antispasmodic effect, facilitates the onset of natural sleep.
Ethylbromisovalerianat has sedative and antispasmodic effect caused by irritation, mainly of receptors in the mouth and nasopharynx, reduction of reflex excitability in the central nervous system and increased inhibition in the cortex and subcortical structures of the brain, as well as reducing the activity of central vasomotor centers and a direct local spasmolytic effect on smooth muscles.
Phenobarbital has a sedative (in small doses), hypnotic, muscle relaxant and antispasmodic effect, reduces the excitation of the central nervous system (CNS) and facilitates sleep, increases the sedative effect of other components.
Peppermint oil has a reflex vasodilatory, antispasmodic, mild choleretic, antiseptic. The mechanism of action is related to the ability to irritate the “cold” receptors of the mucous membrane of the mouth and expand reflexively mainly vessels of the heart and brain. It eliminates the phenomena of flatulence due to irritation of the mucous membrane receptors of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT), increasing intestinal peristalsis.
