Pharmacological properties


Medomeksi is an antioxidant drug that improves the metabolism of brain tissues, their blood supply, rheological properties and blood microcirculation, and decreases platelet aggregation. Ethylmethylhydroxypyridine succinate has the property of stabilizing the membrane structures of platelets and erythrocytes. Its hypolipidemic effect reduces the concentration of low density lipoproteins and total cholesterol in the blood.

In addition to the antioxidant drug, it has a membrane-protective effect. Inhibits lipid peroxidation, stabilizes blood cell membranes, increases the activity of the enzyme superoxide dismutase and the ratio of lipids and proteins in the cell membrane. Increases blood flow, decreasing its viscosity. Medomexi is able to modulate the activity of membrane-bound enzymes (adenylate cyclase, calcium-independent phosphodiesterase, acetylcholinesterase), receptor complexes [GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), benzodiazepine, acetylcholine], causing an increase in their ability to bind to ligands. Improves synaptic transmission, is active for maintaining the structural and functional organization of biomembranes and transport of neurotransmitters. Promotes an increase in the content of dopamine in the brain. Under conditions of hypoxia, it enhances the compensatory activation of aerobic glycolysis, causes a decrease in the degree of inhibition of oxidative processes in the Krebs cycle, increases the content of creatine phosphate and ATP (adenosine triphosphoric acid), activates the energy-synthesizing functions of mitochondria, and stabilizes cell membranes.

The pharmacological activity of Medomeksi allows its use to increase the body's resistance to stress, provide anxiolytic action, which is not accompanied by drowsiness and muscle relaxant effect, improve memory, concentration of attention and mental activity, facilitate learning. The drug has an anticonvulsant effect, exhibits antioxidant and antihypoxic properties, improves performance, weakens the toxic effect of alcohol.


When taken orally, Medomeksi is rapidly absorbed, the half-absorption period lasts about 1 hour.

Regardless of the dosage form of the drug ethylmethylhydroxypyridine, succinate is rapidly distributed in tissues and organs. The maximum concentration (C max) of the drug in the blood plasma is achieved when taking tablets after 0.5 hours and is 0.05–0.1 μg / ml, with i / m administration, its level corresponds to 2.5–4 μg / ml after 0, 3–0.58 hours after injection of 400–500 mg of Medomeksi solution.

In the liver, ethylmethylhydroxypyridine succinate is metabolized by glucuronidation with the formation of metabolites: 3-hydroxypyridine phosphate (formed in the liver and with the participation of alkaline phosphatase decomposes into 3-hydroxypyridine and phosphoric acid), two glucuronconjugates, a pharmacologically active metabolite in large quantities, which is found later 1-2 days after using the drug, and a metabolite, which is excreted in large quantities in the urine.

When taking tablets, the half-life (T 1/2) of the active substance is about 5 hours.

With intramuscular injection, T 1/2 and the average retention time of the drug in the body is 0.7-1.3 hours.

Within 12 hours, 50% of the dose taken is rapidly excreted through the kidneys in the form of metabolites, 0.3% unchanged. The most intense elimination of the drug occurs within the first four hours after taking it. Indicators of metabolites and unchanged ethylmethylhydroxypyridine succinate in urine have individual variability.
