Neo-angin is a combined drug. The mechanism of action is due to the activity of the substances that make up Neo-angina. Amylmetacresol is a phenol derivative, dichlorobenzyl alcohol is a benzene derivative, and levomenthol is a cyclic monoterpene. Their combination contributes to the antiseptic and minor local anesthetic effect. Antiseptics are active against pathogenic microorganisms in the oral cavity and pharynx. The most common pathogens of pharyngitis include such gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms as staphylococci, pneumococci, fusobacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus, Branhamella catarrhalis Haemophilus influenzae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In addition, Candida albicans and other yeast or pathogenic fungi can be the causative agent of the disease.
The main antibacterial effect of amylmetacresol and dichlorobenzyl alcohol is manifested on the surface of the mucous membrane, where both substances interact with cell membrane lipids. Levomenthol, complementing their action, exhibits a slight anesthetic effect of the mucous membrane by stimulating the cold receptors in the oral cavity.
Neo-angina is used to treat such infectious and inflammatory diseases of the oral cavity and pharynx as colds, tonsillitis, laryngitis, gingivitis, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, stomatitis, candidiasis. Its use is indicated when the first signs of diseases of the oral cavity and pharynx appear. Early therapy often avoids antibiotics. By eliminating the symptoms of irritation of the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract, the drug soothes sore throat and relieves nasal congestion.
With slow dissolution of the tablet in the mouth, the released active components of Neo-angina cause a local antiseptic and a small local anesthetic effect, and their adhesion to the mucous membrane prolongs this action.
The tablets are well tolerated and taste good.
The effectiveness of the drug against pathogenic microorganisms does not decrease with prolonged use.
The absorption of all active components of the drug is fast.
Dichlorobenzyl alcohol is metabolized to form 2,4-dichlorobenzoic acid, the excretion of which occurs through the kidneys unchanged or as a glycine compound. Amylmetacresol and levomenthol are excreted through the kidneys as glucuronides.

Reviews about Neo-Angina
Reviews about Neo-Angina are mostly positive. They note the effectiveness of the drug for relieving discomfort in the throat. The tablets quickly reduce pain and inflammation, relieve redness and sore throat, and refresh the oral cavity. The drug exhibits the most pronounced effect at the initial stage of the disease. The absorption of several tablets a day at the appearance of the first symptoms of an inflammatory process in the throat allows many patients to localize and interrupt the development of the disease. In addition, the advantages of the drug are often low cost, ease of use, pleasant taste and the presence of a dosage form that does not contain sugar.
A significant drawback is the content of a synthetic dye in the composition of Neo-angina, which, when absorbed, stains the tongue and can cause allergies.
