The ATX A03AD02 code
At oral administration absorption – high, the semi-absorption period – 12 min. Bioavailability – 100%. It is evenly distributed in fabrics, gets into smooth muscle cells. Time of achievement of the maximum concentration (TCmax) – 2 h. Communication with proteins of blood plasma – 95-98%. A half-life period – 2.4 h. It is generally removed by kidneys, to a lesser extent – with bile. Does not get through a blood-brain barrier (GEB).
Antispasmodic from group of derivatives of isoquinoline, makes expressed the weakening impact on smooth muscles of internals and vessels.
The mechanism of action is connected with inhibition of enzyme (FDE IV) phosphodiesterase IV. The inhibition of FDE IV leads to the termination of destruction of tsAMF and its accumulation in a smooth muscle cell. On chemical structure and pharmacological properties it is close to a papaverine, but possesses stronger and long action. Reduces a tone and physical activity of smooth muscles of internals, expands blood vessels.
In cells of smooth muscles of a myocardium and vessels, hydrolysis of tsAMF happens generally with the participation of FDE III isoenzyme that explains sharp selectivity of effect of Drotaverinum as spasmolysant in the absence of the significant therapeutic action on a cardiovascular system and development of the serious cardiovascular undesirable phenomena.
– spasms of smooth muscles in diseases of biliary tract: a cholecystolithiasis, a cholangiolithiasis, cholecystitis, a pericholecystitis, a cholangitis, a papillitis

Features of influence of medicine on ability to run the vehicle or potentially dangerous mechanisms
Considering side effects, it is necessary to be careful at control of motor transport and potentially dangerous mechanisms.
Symptoms: in high doses breaks atrioventricular conductivity, reduces excitability of a cardiac muscle, can cause cardiac arrest and paralysis of a respiratory center.
Treatment: drug withdrawal, the symptomatic therapy directed to elimination of the arisen disturbances. Specific antidote does not exist.
