Powder for preparation of oral solution Rehydron
Powder for preparation of oral solution Rehydron

Rehydron is a drug for enteral use with detoxification and rehydration effects.

Release form and composition

Dosage form - powder for preparation of a solution for oral administration: white crystalline mass, after dissolving in water - a transparent colorless liquid with a salty-sweet taste, odorless (in a laminated sachet made of aluminum foil, in a cardboard box 4 or 20 sachets).

Content of active substances of Rehydron in 1 sachet / 1000 ml of ready-made solution:

  • Dextrose - 10 g / 55.5 mmol;
  • Sodium chloride - 3.5 g / 59.9 mmol;
  • Sodium citrate - 2.9 g / 11.2 mmol;
  • Potassium chloride - 2.5 g / 33.5 mmol.

Pharmacological properties


Glucose in Rehydron promotes the absorption of salts and citrates and supports metabolic acidosis.

The osmolarity of the finished solution is 260 mosm / l. The solution medium is slightly alkaline (pH 8.2). Compared to standard solutions recommended by WHO for rehydration therapy, Regidron has a lower osmolarity. Also, in comparison with analogues in the composition of the drug, the sodium concentration is lower, and the potassium content is higher.

Hypoosmolar solutions are considered more effective. With a low sodium concentration, the risk of developing hypernatremia decreases, and with an increased level of potassium, its level is restored more quickly.


The pharmacokinetics of the electrolytes and glucose that make up the drug correspond to the pharmacokinetics of these substances in the body.

Indications for use

  • Correction of acidosis, restoration of water and electrolyte balance in acute diarrhea (including cholera) or heat injury that caused a violation of water and electrolyte metabolism;
  • Prevention of imbalance in water and electrolyte balance during heat and physical exertion associated with intense sweating;
  • Oral rehydration therapy for acute diarrhea with mild to moderate dehydration.


  • Unconsciousness;
  • Functional disorders of the kidneys;
  • Diabetes mellitus (non-insulin dependent and insulin dependent);
  • Intestinal obstruction;
  • Hypersensitivity to drug components.

Instructions for the use of Regidron: method and dosage

The ready-made Rehydron solution is intended for enteral use, for this purpose, the contents of 1 sachet of the drug should be dissolved in 1000 ml of freshly boiled chilled water.

Recommended dosage:

  • Diarrhea: 50-100 ml of solution should be drunk every 3-5 minutes. When using a nasogastric tube, the procedure takes 3-5 hours. With a mild course of the disease, the daily dose should be at the rate of 40-50 ml per 1 kg of the patient's weight, with an average - 80-100 ml per 1 kg;
  • Polyuria, heat cramps, thirst: 100-150 ml for 30 minutes (500-900 ml), the intake should be repeated every 40 minutes until the symptoms of the disease disappear completely;
  • Supportive therapy: 80-100 ml per 1 kg of body weight per day during the entire period of diarrhea, until the water and electrolyte balance is completely restored.

Side effects

Allergic reactions may develop against the background of taking Rehydron.


In the case of taking an excessively large amount of solution or when using an excessively concentrated solution, the likelihood of developing hypernatremia increases, the manifestations of which are drowsiness, weakness, neuromuscular agitation, confusion, coma, and respiratory arrest.

Patients with reduced renal function are at risk of developing metabolic alkalosis (neuromuscular agitation, tetanic seizures, decreased ventilation) and hyperkalemia.

In case of severe overdose with pronounced signs of metabolic alkalosis or hypernatremia, the drug should be discontinued. Further treatment is prescribed based on the results of laboratory tests.

special instructions

The patient's loss of more than 10% of body weight in severe dehydration (anuria) should be restored by the appointment of intravenous rehydration drugs, followed by the use of Rehydron.

Without confirmation by laboratory studies of the need for additional administration of electrolytes, the recommended dosing regimen should not be exceeded.

A high concentration of the solution can cause the development of hypernatremia.

In case of nausea and vomiting, Rehydron should preferably be taken in small, repeated refrigerated doses.

Do not add sugar to the solution.

You can feed the patient immediately after rehydration. When vomiting, Regidron is taken 10 minutes later in small sips, slowly.

With dehydration in patients with renal failure, diabetes mellitus and other chronic pathologies, careful monitoring of their condition is required during drug treatment, since dehydration causes a violation of the acid-base, electrolyte or carbohydrate balance.

With the appearance of loose bloody stools, an increase in body temperature of more than 39 ° C, the duration of diarrhea for more than 5 days, a sudden cessation of diarrhea and the appearance of severe pain, with cessation of urinary flow, the patient has slowed down speech, rapid fatigue, drowsiness or the patient's inability to answer questions, it is necessary seek medical advice.
