Pharmacological properties

Pharmacokinetics

Acetaminophen (paracetamol) – effective half-life (Т ½) of acetaminophen is 2-2.5 hours. It extends after use of large dosages and in case of use by persons suffering hepatic disorders. Paracetamol is excreted with urine (85% of single dose of acetaminophen is excreted within 24 hours).

Excretion is significantly worse in case of failure of excretive function of kidney that can lead to accumulation of acetaminophen in body and products of its metabolism.

Chlorpheniramine maleate – elimination takes place in liver. Time of semielimination is 8 hours. Metabolism products andnon-metabolizing part of drug is excreted with urine.

Phenylephrine hydrochloride eliminates in liver by way of demethylation.

Pharmacodynamics

acetaminophen (paracetamol) has analgesic, antifebrile and slightly expressed antiphlogistic effect thanks to influence on heat regulating and inhibiting center of prostaglandin synthesis in central nervous system;

chlorpheniramine maleate – blocker of H1- histamine receptors, prevents fromactivity of one of main inflammatory mediators – histamine. It decreases penetrance of capillary wall, decreases intensity of local exudative occurrences: rhinorrhea, irritation in eyes and nose. Eliminates edema ofmucosae of nose, pharyngonasal cavity, upper respiratory tracts, thus it is easier to breath.

Drug interaction

Not recommended to use together with sleeping aids, sedatives and drugs that include alcohol.

Hepato- and nephrotoxicity of acetaminophen strengthens during combination with barbiturates, alcohol.

Simultaneous use of sleeping aids and sedatives, neuroleptics, tranquilizing drug, alcohol significantly strengthens inhibiting effect of chlorpheniramine maleaten on central nervous system.

Acetaminophen slows down excretion of antibiotics from body. Tetracyclines increase risk of development of anemia and methemoglobinemia during application of acetaminophen.

Phenylephrine hydrochloride decreases hypotensive action of reserpine and octadinum. Joint application of inhibitors of monoamine oxidase and phenylephrine hydrochloride can lead to development of hypertensive crisis.
