Latin name: Rimecor
ATX code: C01EB15
Active ingredient: trimetazidine (trimetazidine)
Producer: MAKIZ-PHARMA CJSC (Russia)
Description and photo update: 2019-20-08
Prices in pharmacies: from 101 rubles.
Rimecor is a drug that has an antihypoxic effect, normalizing the energy metabolism of cells under conditions of hypoxia or ischemia.
Release form and composition
Dosage form - film-coated tablets: round, convex on both sides, pink; core - from white to almost white (10 pcs. in blisters, in a cardboard bundle 1, 2, 3 or 6 packs; 30 pcs. in blister packs, in a cardboard bundle 1 or 2 packs; 60 pcs.. in polymer cans, in a cardboard box 1 can).
Active ingredient: trimetazidine dihydrochloride - 20 mg in 1 tablet.
Additional components: magnesium stearate, ludipress LCE (povidone, lactose monohydrate), colloidal silicon dioxide (aerosil), lactose monohydrate, croscarmellose sodium.
The composition of the film shell: macrogol 4000 (polyethylene glycol 4000), titanium dioxide, talc, hypromellose (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose), azorubin dye (E122).
The active ingredient of Rimecor is trimetazidine, a substance that has an antianginal and antihypoxic effect, which improves the metabolism of the myocardium and neurosensory organs under ischemic conditions.
Trimetazidine directly affects the neurons and cardiomyocytes of the brain, thereby optimizing their metabolism and function. Its cytoprotective effect is explained by the ability to increase the energy potential, activate oxidative decarboxylation and rationalize oxygen consumption (enhance aerobic glycolysis and block fatty acid oxidation). Rimecor maintains myocardial contractility, prevents a decrease in the intracellular content of phosphorus creatine and adenosine triphosphate.
Under conditions of acidosis, trimetazidine prevents the accumulation of calcium and sodium in cardiomyocytes, normalizes the functioning of membrane ion channels and the intracellular content of potassium ions. Reduces intracellular acidosis and increased phosphate levels due to reperfusion and myocardial ischemia. It prevents the activation of neutrophils in the ischemic zone, prevents the damaging action of free radicals, increases the duration of the electric potential, preserves the integrity of cell membranes, reduces the release of creatine phosphokinase from cells, and reduces the severity of ischemic myocardial damage.
With angina pectoris, trimetazidine reduces the frequency of attacks, as a result of which the need for nitrates decreases. After 2 weeks of regular use, exercise tolerance increases, blood pressure drops decrease. In patients taking Rimecor, tinnitus and dizziness decrease, hearing and vestibular test results improve.
In vascular pathology of the eyes, trimetazidine helps to restore the functional activity of the retina.
Trimetazidine, entering the body in the form of tablets, is rapidly and almost completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Its bioavailability reaches 90%. The maximum plasma concentration is observed after about 2 hours and is about 55 ng / ml after a single dose of 20 mg.
The drug is characterized by a low binding to plasma proteins - 16%. Easily penetrates histohematogenous barriers.
It is excreted by the kidneys, and in unchanged form ~ 60%. The half-life is 4.5-5 hours.
Indications for use
- Ischemic heart disease (as part of complex therapy for the prevention of angina attacks);
- Vertigo of vascular origin;
- Chorioretinal vascular disorders;
- Cochleo-vestibular disorders of an ischemic nature, such as tinnitus, dizziness, hearing impairment.
- Severe liver dysfunction;
- Renal failure (creatinine clearance less than 15 ml / minute);
- Age under 18;
- Pregnancy and lactation;
- Glucose-galactose malabsorption, lactose intolerance or lactase deficiency;
- Hypersensitivity to any component of the drug.
Instructions for the use of Rimecor: method and dosage
Rimecor should be taken orally with food.
Adult patients are prescribed 1 tablet 2-3 times a day.
The duration of treatment in each case is determined individually.
- From the digestive system: often (more than 1/100 and less than 1/10) - abdominal pain, nausea, dyspepsia, diarrhea, vomiting;
- From the side of the cardiovascular system: rarely (more than 1/10 000 and less than 1/1000) - hot flushes to the skin of the face, orthostatic hypotension;
- From the side of the central nervous system: often - dizziness, headache, asthenia; very rarely (less than 1/10 000) - extrapyramidal disorders (rigidity, tremor, akinesia), reversible after drug withdrawal;
- Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders: often - rash, urticaria, itching.
To date, no cases of overdose have been reported.
According to the instructions, Rimecor is not intended to relieve angina attacks, but is used to prevent them.
Trimetazidine is not indicated for the initial course of therapy for unstable angina and myocardial infarction.
If the nature of the attacks of angina pectoris changes, as well as when they become more frequent, you should consult a doctor to review and adapt the course of treatment.
In patients with coronary artery disease, Rimecor significantly reduces the daily requirement for nitrates.
The drug, as a rule, does not affect the speed of psychophysical reactions and the ability to concentrate.
Application during pregnancy and lactation
Rimecor is contraindicated in pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers.
The drug is not used in pediatric practice for the treatment of children and adolescents under the age of 18.
With impaired renal function
It is forbidden to take Rimecor to patients with renal insufficiency (if creatinine clearance is below 15 ml / min).
For violations of liver function
Patients with concomitant severe hepatic impairment are prohibited from taking Rimecor.
There is no information on the interaction of Rimecor with other medicinal products.
