Mexiprim belongs to heteroaromatic antioxidants. Has a wide range of pharmacological activity: exhibits anxiolytic effect, not accompanied by muscle relaxant effect; increases the body's resistance to stress; has a nootropic effect; prevents and reduces memory and learning impairments arising from exposure to various pathogenic elements and aging; has an anticonvulsant effect; exhibits antihypoxic and antioxidant functions; increases efficiency and concentration of attention; reduces the toxic effect of alcohol.
Ethylmethylhydroxypyridine succinate improves blood circulation and metabolism of brain tissues, increases the rheological properties of blood and its microcirculation, and reduces platelet aggregation. Aligns the membrane structures of blood cells (platelets and erythrocytes). Has a hypolipidemic effect, inhibits the content of total cholesterol and low density lipoproteins.
The mechanism of action of Mexiprim is due to its membrane-protective and antioxidant action. Reduces the rate of lipid oxidation, increases the activity of superoxide oxidase, improves the lipid-protein ratio, reduces the viscosity of the membrane, and increases its fluidity. It modulates the activity of membrane-bound enzymes (calcium-independent phosphodiesterase, acetylcholinesterase adenylate cyclase,), receptor complexes (acetylcholine, gamma-aminobutyric acid, benzodiazepine), due to which their ability to bind to ligands is enhanced, the structural and functional organization of biomedipine is preserved, the structural and functional organization of biomedipine is improved. Increases the content of dopamine in the brain. It causes an increase in the compensatory activation of aerobic glycolysis and a decrease in the degree of inhibition of oxidative processes in the Krebs cycle,under conditions of hypoxia with an increase in the content of ATP and creatine phosphate, stabilization of cell membranes and activation of the energy-synthesizing functions of mitochondria.
The maximum concentration of the drug in blood plasma is approximately 50 to 100 ng / ml. The half-life is 4.7–5 hours; the average retention time in the body is 4.9–5.2 hours. The drug is actively metabolized, forming a glucuronoconjugated product. In about 12 hours, 0.3% of the unchanged substance and 50% of the administered dose are excreted in the urine as glucuronoconjugate. Especially actively Mexiprim and its glucuronoconjugate are released during the first 4 hours after taking the drug. The excretion of ethylmethylhydroxypyridine succinate and its conjugated metabolite by the kidneys has significant individual variability.
When administered orally (tablets), absorption from the gastrointestinal tract is rapid. The half-absorption period is 0.08–0.1 hours. The substance reaches its maximum concentration in blood plasma in 0.46–0.5 hours.
