Ripronat ( Capsules)
Capsules. Capsule of Ripronat contains 3-(2,2,2-trimethyihydrazinium) propionate dihydrate 250 mg or 500 mg.
Ripronat is a structural analog of y-butirobetaine - carnitine precursor. Carrying out the functions of y-butirobetaine, it accelerates nerve impulse transmission in a human body. As the result all mental reactions are accelerated, general metabolism is improved, a tonic effect is observed. There are memory improvements, acceleration of performance of mental tasks, dexterity increasing, and physical performance. It attenuates mental and exercise stress.
By inhibiting y-butirobetainehydroxylase the medicine decreases biosynthesis of carnitine and transport of long chain fatty acids through cell membranes, prevents accumulation of activated forms of unoxidized fatty acids - derivatives of acylcarnitine and acylcoenzyme A, thus stopping their harmful action. In conditions of ischemia it restores the balance between delivery and cells oxygen demand. As the result of decrease of carnitine concentration y-butirobetaine (which has vasodilating properties) is intensively synthesized. It delays tissue necrosis, accelerates rehabilitation period in acute myocardial infarction. It improves myocardial contractility and increases exercise tolerance in cardiac insufficiency.
The medicine can eliminates the functional disturbances of somatic and autonomic nervous system in patients with chronic alcoholism in the period of abstinence. It is well-absorbed following oral administration.
